Interview with Author Chand Svare Ghei

Author Chand Svare Ghei (1976) is a high performance leader, visionary futurist, inspiring technologist and creative artist always looking for new challenges. He has an extremely broad experience including time spent in Afghanistan, Kosovo and Bosnia.

He has written his books in more than twenty countries and he uses reality as his main inspiration as he feels that reality provides even better stories than fantasy. This is the reason why the world he pens is close to ours, but contains various mysterious deviations.

In his early years, his mother introduced him to the world of fiction. This was the beginning of his love for creating short stories. For much of his childhood and youth years he continued writing until an abrupt pause when he reached his twenties. Life demanded other things from him.

Until 2004, when he was travelling to some of the most romantic locations on earth, he was again convinced under the shining moon to re-enter the worlds created by queues of letters.

Tell me more about your latest book

Iris is about the detective Kenneht Johansen, which not a particularly good detective, but through hard work, collaboration with his partner Birger, and a large portion of luck and alcohol manages to solve cases. His wife has committed sucice, and this is something Kenneth is not able to handle. And he wants to find other reasons, and blames it on murder, and wants to open a case investigating it. He keep finding new clues but are they real, or is he simply creating ghosts in his denial?

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

Even though it is fictional, I am also sharing information from my personal life, and this I find difficult for two reasons: 1. To find areas to share that can be interesting and 2. to be open and candid about my own experience.

What is your normal procedure to get your books published?

I self publish my book, so I pretty much do most of the work myself. In addition I have a few very helpful people that support the book creating process, of which most of is voluntary contribution. These people are critical for the success.

Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?

For me, writing is mostly a spiritual and therapeutic, process. (This of course does not make it easier, as I keep using writing as a way to challenge myself)

How many books have you written so far?

Four books in Norwegian, Nesten som magi, Mørket – Håpet, Regnbuepyttene and Idyll. And two in english, Prasvapa and Iris. I plan to write 5 more books.

What’s the best way to market your books?

I believe that a lot of the supporting services to self publishing writers have not developed to support a modern world, instead of being lost in the past, preying on the author instead of enabling the author. I am currently engaging in activities to facilitate better supporting services for indie authors.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing?

I do have full time job and writing is only a hobby. Being a full time writer can be hard, but hopefully it can be better in the future.

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

You are the seed of the truth and entertainment of tomorrow.
