I’ve heard to write in scenes. If your jumping from scene to scene quickly then you’ll have more, shorter chapters. I’m not an expert though; I write short stories mostly.

There is some author–Koontz, I think–who starts off with”normal” chapter lengths, but they get very short as the plot climaxes. Some chapters near the end of the books are a page or less.

I guess it comes down to maintaining pace.
