Atheist Author Q&As

PWFor me, bringing atheism and humanism more into the mainstream marketplace of ideas has been one of the most important aspects of atheist activism. This is why I am super excited to be a freelance writer for Publishers Weekly. This gives me the opportunity in interview atheist and humanist authors and help them put atheist books and humanist books into that marketplace better so that they can be found by the general public as well as by fellow atheists and humanists. I should also note that not all of the authors I interview are or will be atheists.
