Welcome to Guest Blogger Kylie Turley

July 29, 2008 | 13 comments

Let’s have a big round of applause for Craig Harline’s busy two weeks as a guest blogger, then roll out the red carpet for our next guest, Kylie Turley. Kylie teaches honors writing at BYU (so watch those errant commas and inscrutable relative pronouns in your comments!) and is also on the staff of the LDS literary journal Segullah. According to a short bio posted at the Segullah site, Kylie is a native of the great state of Wyoming and researches Mormon women’s history. Thank you, Craig, and welcome Kylie!

    Kylie, I quite enjoyed your article, “Kanab’s All Woman Town Council, 1912–1914: Politics, Power Struggles and Polygamy” in the UHQ. I look forward to your posts.

    Marc–are you my friend Marc Bohn, the son of David Bohn?

    Kylie, you don’t know my father, but welcome anyway.

    Forgot to ask if you have a relative from AZ who served a mission in Sapporro, Japan.

  7. Marc Bohn on July 29, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    One and the same : )

    Kylie! How’s it going? I look forward to reading your posts. :-)

    Hi Katherine, did you get your job or whatever you were applying for?

  10. Kylie on July 30, 2008 at 12:12 pm

    Ray, my husband’s family is from Arizona. It’s entirely possible that one of his cousins (or second cousins or . . . well, what do you call cousins who are related to you five generations back from a different polygamous wife?) went to Japan on a mission.

    Kylie Turley,

    Are you really Kyle Turley, OG for the Rams, writing for Segullah with this nom de plume? Because the facial similarities are remarkable: the similarity in names; the fact that you both lived in Provo for a time; and your joint penchants for expressing yourself through art. Of course, he’s all about the body art. Maybe you are too, but if so, I don’t want to know about it.

    I look forward to your posts.

    Hi jimbob–I’m definitely not the same as Kyle (no body art, no playing for the Rams). If I were to write under a pseudonym, I would use the one I chose when I was 8 years old: Hailey Blaine. And I doubt anyone besides my mom would find the connection and figure out why I thought that would be a cool name.
