    I've been wrestling with this for some hours and I'm wondering if anyone can see what's wrong with it.

    This is a linked list meaning the last element should always point to NULL

    int main(void) {
    	srand ( time(NULL) );
    	BOOK books;				// Both of these should be stored as pointers and malloc should be used to make things easier for myself but when I switch it and make the necessary changes, the program still crashes
    	MEMBER club;
    	club.next = NULL;
    	books.ISBN[0] = 'a';
    	books.next = &books;
    if (userInput == 1) { // Let's add a new member!
    				char fName[32];
    				char mInit;
    				char lName[32];
    				char phoneNum[13];
    				printf("Please enter the user's first name\n");
    				getUserInputString(32, fName);  //this function works for sure
    				printf("Please enter the user's middle inital\n");
    				getUserInputString(1, &mInit);
    				printf("Please enter the user's last name\n");
    				getUserInputString(32, lName);
    				printf("Please enter the user's phone number\n");
    				getUserInputString(13, phoneNum);
    				memberInsert(&club, fName, mInit, lName, phoneNum);

    MEMBER* memberInsert(MEMBER* memberStart, char fname[], char mInit, char lname[], char phonenum[]) {
    	MEMBER *newMember = (MEMBER*) malloc(sizeof(MEMBER));
    	strcpy((newMember->name).firstname, fname);
    	strcpy(newMember->name.lastname, lname);
    	newMember->name.intial = mInit;
    	strcpy(newMember->telephone, phonenum);
    	return insertMember(memberStart, newMember);
    MEMBER* insertMember(MEMBER *memberStart, MEMBER *newMember) {
    	MEMBER* currentMem = memberStart;
    	if ((memberStart->telephone)[0] == 'a') {
    		memberStart = newMember;
    		return memberStart;
    	while (currentMem->next != NULL)
    		currentMem = currentMem->next;
    	currentMem->next = newMember;
    	return memberStart;

    In memberInsert():

    newMember->next = NULL;

    If that's not it, what behavior are you expecting and what is the result?
