Refutation of the Leftist Culture That Plagued 2020
Michael Edward Mebruer was born in 1994 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His family moved around a lot when he was a child. He spent most of his childhood in rural parts of Kansas and Louisiana. As an adult, he worked full time as a medical lab technician while being a full-time college student. He graduated from LSU in 2019 with a degree in Economics.
Most people who personally know Michael Mebruer, know him as a laid back and goofy guy who does his best to make people laugh. He is loving and loyal to the close group of friends and family in his life. He also considers himself to be a “bad millennial.” He considers this due to his hatred of social media, lack of entitlement, and general sense of humility.
Author Michael Edward Mebruer, thank you for joining us today for this interview. Please tell us is there a message in your novel that you want your readers to grasp?
The message is that there are a lot of people in America today that are attempting to control our national conversations. They claim that they are speaking for the minorities and the underprivileged. But they really seek to advance themselves and their ideology, they do not care what happens to the people that they claim to help.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
One of the more challenging parts for me was finding all my references. I have over 100 references in the book. I would say most of the time I spent on the book, was time spent researching and finding new references.
How many books have you written, which was your favorite?
This is my first book. So, I would say “A Mostly Peaceful Book” is my number one book and my best seller.
When did you begin writing?
I began writing this book in Summer of 2020.
How long did it take to complete your first book?
I finished writing the book in November of 2020, so it took me about five months. Then it went through about three months of editing. And it was ready in March 2021.
Did you have an author who inspired you to become a writer?
Ben Shapiro is an inspiration. I have read several of his books, and I listen to his podcast every day. He is a smart guy who has stood against the radical left for years. While I am not as smart as him, I wanted to follow his example and make a stand of my own.
What is your favorite part of the writing process?
Reviewing what I wrote. Usually, my first draft would serve as the core of a chapter. Then I would look over it and see where something could be added to or omitted. I think it is a nice feeling knowing that things are progressing.
Describe your latest book in 4 words.
Don’t believe liberal elitists.
Can you share a little bit about your current work or what is in the future for your writing?
I am not working on anything else right now. I have a few Ideas but right now they are still in early development. I am not sure if I will write another book. I wrote this one because I was really fired up at the time. Unless I can bring that same level of passion to another book, I am really not interested.
