Scot and Maurine Proctor are the founders of the Latter-day Saint oriented website Meridian Magazine. They have also issued a revised edition of Lucy Mack Smith's history of Joseph Smith which reintroduces material from Lucy's 1845 manuscript that was removed before Lucy's history was originally published. This version of Lucy's history is cited by such scholars such as Susan Easton Black and Craig J. Ostler. The Proctors' work is also among those cited in the bibliography to Scott R. Petersen's 2005 book Where Have All The Prophets Gone. The Proctors have also published a new edition of the Autobiography of Parley Parker Pratt.
The Proctors have compiled a book Light from the Dust which presents photos of areas they believe are similar scenes to where the events of the Book of Mormon took place. For this book the Proctors did on-site studies in Oman. Scholars such as Andrew H. Hedges though have quoted the Proctor's work, although Fred W. Nelson of the Neal A. Maxwell Institute felt that their work was "less reputable" in the area of Book of Mormon geography and archaeology than that of "reputable scholars" such as John Clark or John Sorenson.
The Proctors wrote The Gathering, Mormon Pioneers on the Trail to Zion. The Gathering was cited in the footnotes to Gregory A. Prince and William Robert Wright's book David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism.
The Proctors are the parents of eleven children in their combined families from prior marriages. They reside in Fairfax, Virginia.
The Proctors have produced a DVD entitled Gordon B. Hinckley - Temple Builder.
