About the author:
I am Chris Svartbeck, fantasy reader and fantasy author. I love murder and magic.
Murder and magic. Those are the right keywords. I write dark, gritty fantasy with betrayal and revenge, swords, barbaric warriors, hot-blooded women, intrigues, murders and a lot of magic. Dark magic. Magic that exacts a high price (and I don’t mean gold).
Why? Quite simply because that’s what I like to read. I am an avowed fan of George R.R. Martin. However, my fantasy worlds are quite a bit smaller (I am too, I don’t even come close to the master author’s girth).
What else do I love about the book? Dragons, evil sorcerers, even more malicious non-sorcerers, women who also know how to wield a knife and a suspenseful ending to each book, even though it’s the middle of a series. Nothing is worse than a book that ends at a point that leaves the reader wondering if the hero will survive. Or the heroine.
However, an ending like that can’t give too much away either. Otherwise, the subsequent books would be irrelevant.
Hobbies? Does an author have time for hobbies? Let’s put it this way: I like to read and I read a lot and, to balance out the many hours I spend in front of the computer, I like to chop wood. But my favorite thing to do is write.
My next few books are already at the starting line!
