The Indie Author Life

In a recent interview with, Gordon Osmond pulled back the curtain a little, on his writing life:

KP: When did you realize the calling towards writing? Have you always been keen on writing?

GO: I took my ability to write for granted during the decades I practiced law. As the end of that career approached, I realized that good writing was capable of doing more than screwing an adversary. I came to appreciate the potential of writing for power and beauty.

KP: Is there any one subject or scene that you would never write about as an author or have ever faced trouble writing, if so what is it?

GO: Everyday life is a subject I would avoid. As an author, I prefer to deal in conflict and intensity. I like to write about heightened reality. Our normal lives provide us more than enough of the pedestrian variety.

KP: Do you read your own book reviews? If so, how do you respond to them? Especially to the bad ones?

GO: I read every one, most more than once. Authors who say otherwise would probably say that they never masturbated as a teenager. I have never complained about a bad review and never will. One can learn a lot from a properly credentialed unfavourable review.
