Interview with Brian Vermeer

Who are your favorite authors?
C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Josh McDowell, Ken Ham. I don't read a lot of fiction.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I'm still alive. That's a good reason for anyone to get out of bed. As long as you're alive, that means there's still something God wants you to do.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have health problems so I spend most of my time at home. I enjoy watching sports on television.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
This may sound bad for an e-book author but I prefer to read print books. I discover the e-books I do read just by doing searches on the internet.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
In typing class in high school (back when we actually used typewriters) I would write parodies of fairy tales at the end of class when we had free time to type whatever we wanted. One of these days, I might actually get up the nerve to publish them (under an assumed name, of course.)
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Bible because it contains the answers to life, the universe and everything. For the other four, The Hobbit and the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings, which I can quote almost as well as the Bible.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I can't afford to do it any other way.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
What success?
What do your fans mean to you?
It means someone is actually reading my books.
What are you working on next?
Continuing my commentary on Genesis. Volume 2 will cover chapters 5-11.
Describe your desk
Sloppy. Next question, please.

The highlight of the Scopes Monkey Trial was when Clarence Darrow called William Jennings Bryan up to the stand. Darrow questioned Bryan on his belief in the Bible. Bryan's answers actually did more harm than good as they seemed to make Bible believers seem ignorant and unsure even of their own beliefs. In this book, I give my opinions on how Bryan should have answered the questions.
