Short, Sharp Interview: Christoph Fischer

healer cover for kindlePDB: What’s going on now?

I published my first ever thriller, THE HEALER, in January. It’s about a woman who turns to a charismatic but controversial healer as a last resort in her battle against cancer.

PDB: How did you research this book?

I could draw on my personal experiences with alternative therapists and I had help from a Radiologist and Wikipedia for the Western Medicine parts.

PDB: Which of your publications are you most proud of?

Probably THE HEALER because I didn’t think I could pull a thriller off. When beta readers liked it and were surprised at the turn of events within the book I was gobsmacked.

PDB: What’s your favourite film/ book/ song/ television programme?

Film: What’s Up Doc?
Book: Shantaram
Song: Xanadu
TV Programme: Brooklyn 99

PDB: Is location important to your writing?

No, just peace and quiet.

PDB: How often do you check your Amazon rankings?

Not often. I’m usualy to busy writing and tweeting to have the time to contemplate my navel.

PDB: What’s next?

I am about to release another historical novel IN SEARCH OF A REVOLUTION on March 26th. I started out with historical novels and love the genre. This is about the Civil War of 1918 in Finland. After that I have another thriller about a gambler, loosely entitled “The Death Box” or “The Game Plan.”
