Why Lupa Schwartz Hates Religion

Religion and atheism are recurring themes in the Lupa Schwartz mysteries. I try to write counterpoint characters to represent the theistic viewpoint and the neutral attitude, but Lupa Schwartz’s anti-theism is at the heart of every Lupa Schwartz story. My stories are also pastiche of the Nero Wolfe series (and Sherlock Holmes) so like the series’ grandfather, Rex Stout, who once wrote an essay entitled Why Nero Wolfe Likes Orchids, I have decided to explain Schwartz’s adamant opposition to all things pious.
