HEADLINERS:Chris Heimerdinger

With almost two million copies of his books sold, popular author, Chris Heimerdinger’s writing career began in 1989, upon the publication of his first book, Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites. The consistent message, found in each of Chris’ Tennis Shoes books, is to integrate themes from the Book of Mormon and Christian doctrine while entertaining audiences of all ages. Chris is currently working on the 13th, and perhaps final, novel in his Tennis Shoe Adventure Series to be called Thorns of Glory.
One of Chris’ novels, A Return to Christmas, was distributed by Random House/Ballantine, and received such national reviews as, “[A] jewel . . . closely follows the same path as the Christmas Box.” —-New York Post. And, “An unforgettable story of family love wrapped in a warm Christmas glow.” — Abilene Reporter-News (
In 2008 Chris produced and directed a feature length motion picture, Passage to Zarahemla, based on his novel of the same name. This was first ever action-adventure-fantasy film celebrating the Book of Mormon. He also produced a 9-song music album for this film called “Whispered Visions.”

Chris currently resides in Providence, UT, near Logan with his wife, Emily, and their large family.
