Today’s Member Monday is brought to you by Jill Hups, president of HIS Writers.

Here’s what HIS Writers is up to this month:

Amazing time at the November 17th Novel Crafters Seminar of the Rockies! A HUGE thank you to those who helped make it happen:

Next year’s seminar will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Our keynote speaker will none other than NY best-selling novelist, Jerry B. Jenkins! Registration info will be available mid February. Space will be limited and we expect to sell out, so plan ahead by saving now.

Jerry is the author of more than 180 books, including the 63,000,000-selling Left Behind series. The Breakthrough, Jenkins’s most recent novel, is the final book in his Precinct 11 trilogy. It released from Tyndale House Publishers in September 2012. Jenkins’s writing has appeared in Time, Reader’s Digest, Parade, Guideposts, and dozens of Christian periodicals. He also serves as a contributing editor to Writer’s Digest.

Jerry is former editor of Moody Magazine, vice president for publishing, and now chairman of the board of trustees for the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. He has been awarded honorary doctorates from Bethel College (Indiana), Trinity International University (Illinois), Colorado Christian University, Huntington University (Indiana), and Tennessee Temple University.

Jenkins and his wife, Dianna, live in Colorado and have three grown sons and eight grandchildren.
