O.S. GillWould you call yourself a born writer?

Yes, I would call myself a born writer.

What was your inspiration for The Knights of Galaria?

Well, I have always wanted to write a novel. When I attended a pop culture convention a few years ago, I got the inspiration to finally be disciplined enough to not only start, but complete a novel. So over the course of the next few months I carefully crafted the world and the storyline that I would write about, and that’s how I ended up writing The Knights of Galaria.

What themes do you like to explore in your writing?

I like to explore adventure, friendship and the triumph of good over evil.

The Knights of GalariaHow long did it take you to complete the novel?

It took me eight months end to end.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

For the most part in writing this novel I was. Although, there was a time when inspiration just was not hitting me, and I didn’t write a single word for almost two weeks. In a typical writing day I would put in about three hours work or about five or six pages.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

Finding the time during my schedule.

What do you love most about being an author?

Having people read my work. It is a very rewarding feeling.

What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

I self-published. It was a lot of leg work, as is probably expected. I am very happy with the decision; I believe that self-publishing will play a much bigger role in works to come.
