Interview with R.M. Schultz, Author of Knights, Witches, and the


master mentalism tricks

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Knights, Witches, and the Missing?

I love epic fantasy, but often get bogged down during the travels in those books when encountering and fighting random monsters to keep the pace going. Also when those books get up to around 1,000 pages.

I wanted to create a fantasy where the pace is quick throughout.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Knights, Witches, and the Missing, what would they be?

Well, that’s hard in epic fantasy. I’d choose bagpipes, and something LOTR.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Epic fantasy and thrillers!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Sarah Maas’s latest. Same for Blake Crouch, Robin Hobb, Leigh Bardugo, and (hopefully) the last two GoT books, but I’ve been waiting for those for about 10 years now.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The epic conclusion, when Calec discovers who/what is all behind the missing children and has to confront them. Things get crazy.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I try to create excellent writing that will one day make George R.R. Martin want to knight me (with a ceremony, sword, and all).

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

I try to live in the world I’m creating and see everything and feel it as it happens. Not a very catchy motto or philosophical, but true to the idea.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I want to make them feel the way I feel when reading my favorite books, and I want them to remember that.
