Brian Gallagher is a writer of childrens' historical fiction.

He read some scenes from his book, 'Taking Sides, about the War of Independence, to a group of 10 and 11-year old schoolchildren in the ILAC Library, Dublin

After each reading, he asked for questions. The children were ready: How long do you write for each day? Is it stressful?

How many kids have you? Do they complain you write too much? How do you pick your characters' names and places to live? Most importantly, how much money do you make?

(A short Irish radio documentary from RTE Radio, Ireland)
