With the success of his first Brick Testament book, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith is considering becoming a reclusive author. “It’s not that my fame has become a burden to me just yet,” explained Smith in a telephone interview. “It’s just that there aren’t a lot of other career paths where you even get the option of becoming reclusive. So it seems that I should at least give some consideration to moving into a rural country home in some unnamed state, declining all interviews, and only contacting the outside world through my literary agent.” Smith says his mind is far from made up, and that he is still also considering the option of becoming a media whore.
