(KUTV) A Mormon author who says she has seen the end of the world has announced plans to write a third book.

Julie Rowe wrote on her website this week her latest book will come out in February 2016.

"After several days and nights of contemplation and being shown that there was more for me to write - I came to the conclusion that I am in fact supposed to write another book," Rowe wrote.

Rowe gained national attention in September after her first book, "A Greater Tomorrow: My Journey Beyond The Veil," was placed on list of "spurious materials in circulation" that LDS seminary and institute instructors are told to avoid.

That book detailed Rowe's near-death experience in 2004 and visions she claimed to have had of the chaotic last days.

"Although Sister Rowe is an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, her book is not endorsed by the Church and should not be recommended to students or used as a resource in teaching them," the church warning reads. "The experiences she shares are her own personal experiences and do not necessarily reflect Church doctrine or they may distort Church doctrine."

Several weeks after that warning came out, Rowe announced she was stepping back, telling her followers "peace out" and canceling group healing sessions she helped lead by telephone.

That hiatus lasted just days as Rowe soon backtracked and said she was "not retreating" and stands by what she has written.

Rowe's latest book, "From Tragedy to Destiny," will be published by Spring Creek Book Company which has offices in Rexburg, Idaho and Provo, according to its website.

Rowe promises her new work will discuss more of what she saw during her original near-death experience as well as other "dreams and visions" she has had in the last ten years.
