About Bill Sargeant

My name is Bill Sargeant, i am 51, live in Rhyl, North Wales but originate from London. I am currently writing a philosophical work of non-fiction entitled, The Sins of God. I am an atheist and in this book argue that if God exists then God must be inherently evil. I have written a novel, a dark humoured parody of life in a remote christian village in Snowdonia, am currently writing a second work of fiction, as well as a series of short stories, which explore my atheistic philosophical beliefs as central themes. Also i have written a couple of collections of poetry.
