Philip Gilliver


I put letters in front of each other to make words, words to make sentences, sentences to make paragraphs, paragraphs to make chapters and chapters to make books. I write comedy, science fiction and fantasy.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
Generally I squeeze what I can into every available hour (with tea). When typing I keep a separate document open which contains names of characters, relationships to each other and events. That way it is easier to keep on track and I don't end up contradicting myself. It is always best to write until your brain feels tired with it and then walk away until you are refreshed enough to restart it.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, it was C.S Lewis's The Magician's Nephew. I was amazed at the kind of journey's a book can take you, such things your own even imagination can't even take you at times. Word journeys for escape.
