I’m used to carrying pen and paper with me since I can remember. I started writing at cafés, where I spent most of my childhood afternoons with my aunt and grandmother, as an escape to entertain myself.
My first “head to toes” fantasy story was written by the age of 11, "O Mundo da Imaginação".
At school, I used to create storylines in group projects, went to the finals of a Portuguese Language Contest, and my written-in-a-hurry-before-the-class poem “O que eu gostaria de ver da janela do meu quarto“ was read twice during class because my colleagues liked it. I was also that person who’d write a full paragraph of 7 sentences for a two-line answer in exams.
On the picture, I’m presenting the story we wrote for the English class with my colleagues, co-writers and illustrators, Marta and Daniel. “Cupcake Killer”, a cupcake who was so hungry he went to eat the inhabitants of an imaginary village. We had a lot of fun! Sadly I didn’t save our story nor presentation.
At 18, I started writing for gaming fansites inside a young adult multiplayer online community. Some examples linked at muckrack. A year later, I even created my own called "Café Pixelado" known for its investigative journalism and Art columns, but ended up closing afterwards.
At 23, I compiled all of my writing volumes with personalized covers by my friend and digital designer, Diego B. Monti. They’re available on my DeviantArt.
At 24, I started publishing some of my poems as open submissions across poetry websites.
By December 2021, I started a write-when-you-need publication #CatchUpSundays on Medium.
At 25, I decided to compile (and continue) my erotic writing in here, still a WIP.
Across time I’ve published texts and poems in Portuguese in anthologies by Chiado Editora, a Portuguese publisher:
