Watkins: Which books and author inspired you to get started writing?
Christopher: Whilst there are many books and authors I admire, none of them inspired me to start writing. I have spent 20 years researching the past, only out of personal interest – and it was only later on that I thought other people might be interested in reading about my findings. No one was more surprised than me when my first book sold 2 million copies in over 40 languages! So, I’m actually an ‘accidental writer’.
W: What are your goals and intentions as a writer?
C: I love words and trying to turn complex ideas into something readable but writing is just a way to share the findings of my researches. My wish is to kick off some good quality debate and help to debunk some of the many entrenched ideas that are provably wrong. Too many people accept what they are told at face value but I firmly believe that asking awkward questions is essential to a healthy society.
W: What empowers you in your daily work and life?
C: Solving problems that no one knows the answers to. I have still so much to learn.
W: What is your next project?
C: I’m the founder and chairman of a high tech company that is creating new ways to learn, entertain and communicate using smart phones and tablets. We are building operations all over the world right now, especially in China. I am also continuing my historic researches in every bit of my spare time.
W: Is there anything you would say to your readers?
C: Firstly, thank you. However, I don’t really see it as a writer-reader relationship because that makes it sound like it is a one way street when it it is not. As the subject matter of my books is too demanding for many, perhaps most, people, I think the readers of my books are intelligent ones! Therefore it’s great to get feedback from readers and very rewarding to know that people find some value in sharing in my investigations. All I suggest is to keep an open mind whilst remaining healthily critical and sceptical.
