I read that atheists are the most disliked and distrusted minority in the country. I wanted to emphasize her morality and goodness, despite being a non-believer.

Are atheists unfairly distrusted?
In the Darcy Farthing Mystery Adventure series, Author Arleen Alleman uses her protagonist to illustrate that there is no reason to distrust atheists.
On her inspiration for making atheism a part of her character’s story, Alleman says, “I read that atheists are the most disliked and distrusted minority in the country. I wanted to emphasize her morality and goodness, despite being a non-believer.”
In the first installment in the series, "Currents Deep and Deadly," readers are introduced to Darcy, a pragmatic scientist who says that she has given up on all belief in a spiritual component to life. She believes that coincidences are either man-made or chance occurrences that seem related but, in reality, have no significance.
Darcy’s logic and belief system are tested by a series of unbelievable coincidences. Although she is not guided by a set of religious values, Darcy demonstrates her inherent goodness time and again.
Throughout the series, Alleman chronicles Darcy’s spiritual journey alongside the intrigue and suspense, giving it deeper meaning and relevance than your average mystery adventure, interweaving important social issues and developing characters readers truly care about. Alleman boldly spearheads other significant social issues through the series, including PTSD, personal demons, adoption and family.
The Darcy Farthing Mystery Adventure Series
Alleman’s series centers around Darcy Farthing, a pragmatic woman in her forties, who readers were first introduced to in Currents Deep and Deadly. After coming face to face with a vicious murderer in the first novel, she wrote a book about the madness she confronted, which completely changed her life, both personally and financially.
The third installment in this page-turning series, Current Assets, is slated for release in Autumn of 2012. In Current Assets, Darcy Farthing and company will face government corruption in the sheriff’s department, mid-east terrorists in South Florida, smuggling, and money laundering schemes.
