Morality for Atheist - Interview

This is an extremely quick read at under 50 pages.

Today we get to meet the author!  Please welcome Ms. Adams to the blog.

I've noticed that you don’t have much information on you online.  Is this because, as mentioned in your book: Morality for Atheists, atheism is still strongly frowned upon in our society? 

I was raised in a Roman Catholic family and my parents are still very much believers. Our family name is unique and I didn't want to alienate my family or make them unhappy so I decided to use a different surname. 

What inspired you to write a book on such a difficult subject?

It’s something that I feel very passionate about. I felt compelled to write the book and get my ideas out there. 

Do you have any other projects we can look forward to reading?

I’m working on a second book on a similar topic but it’s still a work in progress. 

What do you feel is the most difficult part about writing?

Ha, the sitting down and writing part.  I’m a terrible procrastinator so I really had to force myself to knuckle down and write!

What one thing stands out the most in your mind as a message you wish the general public to hear?

That being atheists and being immoral are two completely different things.

This book was much shorter than I had anticipated.  Do you have an extended version or possibly a series of writings that will work as a collection?

It is deliberately short. I intended it to be an introduction on atheism and morality. As I said I’m working on a second book which is on a similar topic.

What types/genres of books do you enjoy reading?

I enjoy thrillers, adventure and fantasy novels and philosophical non-fiction. 

How long have you been a writer?

This is my first published book but I've been writing for over a decade. 

Thank you so much for visiting us Mary-Louise. Best of luck with your books!!

Hi, I'm Mary-Louise Adams. Sometimes I write stuff down and sometimes people laugh. My life goals include getting a bigger place so I can adopt two Great Pyrenees or Bernese Mountain puppies (aww, puppies!) and getting over my fear of pigeons. Thank you.
