Osmond is the secondary villain of Stephen King's The Talisman. In the Territories (a parallel universe), he is known as Osmond and is the right-hand man of Morgan Sloat, the primary villain of the story. In the here and now, he poses as an evangelical leader named Sunlight Gardener.

As Sunlight Gardener, he is the charismatic owner of the Sunlight Home for Wayward Boys, where he oversees the abuse, torture, and even murder of teenage boys and successfully hides any evidence from the authorities. He vaguely recognizes Jack when he arrives at the home and eventually tortures him to make Jack tell him how they know each other. He is interrupted by Wolf's rampage through the Home and flees.

Later, Jack confronts Osmond (as Gardener) and uses the Talisman to kill him.
