The U.S. Army sent Oborn to Information Specialist School for training in media journalism. After graduation he was shipped to Camp Zama, Japan to manage a theater where he contributed to the Stars and Strips and directed live stage plays.
Author: The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott. His second book, a suspense fiction, has become a subject of heated debate and interest among angry Mormons, ex-Mormons, and religious scholars. The book has been critiqued and reviewed on five continents. A growing audience is spreading though borderline church members in the 15,000,000 membership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Oborn has piqued the indignation of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles In Salt Lake City for writing a suspense fiction using the cultural environment of Mormonism as the backdrop of his story just as Dan Brown did among the Cardinals of Rome with the Da Vinci Code.
A fascination with science and cultural anthropology, Oborn graduated from Weber State University and holds a title of Chemical Dependency Professional in the State of Washington. He is affiliated with SAFE CALL NOW, a nonprofit organization involved with police and firefighters. "Our first responders have the most difficult job in our society. As a result of the high stress and injury rates they have a suicide rate almost three times that of us, the citizen they protect and serve. Most of that number suffer the disease of addiction. Very few people realize this."
