Q: How did you start writing?
A: When I was in the eighth grade, a teacher congratulated me for writing a fantasy poem. Not long after, I began to write short stories in my native language, Portuguese. But it all started when I met a great writer, Scarlet Hyacinth, who showed me how to let out these trapped worlds in my imagination. In the beginning, I was so excited that I wrote two or three chapters each day. I used to write even while in recess in high-school. But the English grammar wasn't there. So, I went on a journey to write in that language, which took me four and a half years to reach. I can say now that every minute was worth it, even if it's not perfect.
Q: Why choose M/M romance?
A: In that same year, 2009, I discovered yaoi, Japanese M/M romance in anime or manga. It became addictive, so it turned into the core of my writing.
Q: What do you do when you're not writing or reading?
A: I walk my Dalmatian dog, Kane, or ride my bicycle. And do some activities with family and friends, of course. If I don't feel like doing that, I surf the internet in search of something new to learn, inspiration for my stories, or watch videos. I also spend some time chatting with readers and writers.
Q: What are the most important things to you while writing?
A: The first is to make sure that no one will bother me. Second, my surroundings can't be a mess or I won't be able to concentrate. And I stay away from the television and the Internet. Third, my desk chair must be comfortable so I don't hurt my back after a while of writing.
Q: What is your writing day like?
A: I wake up around 6 in the morning and start writing once I'm ready. Throughout the day, I'm on and off, since there's a life beyond writing. But whenever I can, I sit at my desk and type away on the keyboard. Oftentimes, while on vacation or on weekends, I choose to stay up late writing.
