I'm working on an epic novel divided into a series - the working title is "The Bible, Part II". It's basically "Left Behind" but with the antichrist as the protagonist who fights back against God's…Continue

About Me:
I'm the author of Jesus Potter Harry Christ and other books. I'm finishing my PhD in Comparative Literature, with a focus on how mythological and religious symbolism influences contemporary pop culture. Working on a new book about Milton's Satan, Prometheus and revolutionary heroes. It's going to be badass. But when I'm not researching, I do book cover design and have a few thriving online businesses.

I’ve always been one to let curiosity get the best of me. On the playground as a child, I refused to use the space as it was intended the way other children did. I played on the roof, I played on the outside of the walls, I climbed up the support beams. I wasn’t inclined to be restricted by the ‘right’ way to interact with the space set out for me. This trend of individualism marked many important decisions in my life, from being an exchange student…


My book and blog

Hi everyone - I'm just starting out at atheist nexus so I thought I'd post links to my blog (Holy Blasphemy) and my book (Jesus Potter Harry Christ). I'm doing my phd in literature, so my blog basically deals with literary theory, comparative religious…

Hi Derek, and welcome to this rational world of Internet atheism---a haven from the superstitions and fictional god of the masses.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 440 discussion topics and 2500 members.
