Smashwords Interview

What inspired you to write your debut novel 'Existence Is Futile'?
First of all I must point out that although it is my first published novel, it is not the first novel that I have ever written.

I was editing my first novel when I decided that I needed a break. I don't remember exactly where but I read an article about NANOWRIMO. For those that don't know NANOWRIMO is an annual, creative writing project which takes place every November. The main aim being to challenge the participants to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days, as well as raising money for various literacy projects. I decided to take on the challenge.

In the last few days of October I was watching different videos on YouTube and I stumbled across a clip of Richard Dawkins participating in a panel debate on religion. A member of the audience stood up and asked him a question somewhat similar to the question that my main character, Henry Tomlinson, receives in 'Existence'. In the video Dawkins gives the most incredible answer and gets a rousing ovation. I couldn't get that image out of my head. My brain started playing it's silly games and soon enough I had the basis for my book entirely based on a man like Professor Dawkins saying precisely the wrong thing in the very same scenario.
So is existence really futile?
Haha, mine personally? Not right now, no.
