Interview: Haidji

What have you had published?
Life into Mist
SG- Suicide Game
What genre(s) of book do you write?
What inspired you to write your first book?
I started to write stories as I was 12 years old,
In hand written and hand painted books.
My books are in private collections and museums,
In limited and very expensive editions.
In 2013 I decided to publish worldwide, old and new stories, step by step.
In 2014 I will publish a tale I wrote many years ago, one of my first stories and another story, book that is in a Museum in Europe.
Everything inspires me to write.
How long did it take you to write “SG-Suicide Game”?
I took years to write SG- Suicide Game
I don’t know how many anymore. The book make persons cry and laugh.
It is very intense, writing this book was overwhelming.
What is the working title of your next book(s)?
For now the name is “Antipoda” or “Antipodes”
The book will be finished in about 2 years, more and less.
When and why did you begin writing?
As I was 12 years old I wrote my first hand painted and hand written book.
A small fairy tale.
I also wrote before, small stories and poems.
Why do I write?
Because to write is like to breath, I see (feel) the story like a movie and write it down, it is like to inspire and expire the world around and inside of me, around and inside other persons, situations and beings. 
Do you self publish your books or go through an agency?
I self publish my books. A Publisher contacted me from New York after “Life into Mist”  but I decided to stay with myself.
What part of writing books do you find the hardest?
It is hard when I want to write and don’t have a pen, pencil or my computer next and need to ask one for someone next to me. I write then over napkins, newspapers or what I can find around me.
 I write almost all the time. The hardest part of writing books and when you need to write something and don’t have a pen next to you.
What do you do in your spare time?
I don’t have spare time J …but I ride a bike 20-30km a day and I love to ski.
Who is your favourite author?
What’s your favourite genre to read?
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Just write and write and write.
Read all you wrote as would you be someone else,
Think about it.
And write it all again.
The first time you write something, don’t think about it, just write it down.
Accept good critics, they help you to grow.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Thank you for the interview, I hope you all enjoy reading my books.
