Welcome to my site!
I was born in a family that used to eat and drink books, I grew up in the world of the moon, I studied a lot of crazy things and ended up becoming a professional liar. Don't believe in everything I tell, because neither I know what I've lived or invented. My life is travelling through this world and other worlds, in search of new things. Sometimes I have to pack and drag my bags, but most part of the time I'm free to live a thousand adventures, catching ideas around and fishing the fantasies that will decorate the stories I love to write.

TATUAGENS DE PODER (Tatoos With Power), alongside with Rosana Rios, is now in preparation by Sesi-SP Publishing House and will be soon available in the market. The book tells the story about two different worlds that cross each other.

In one of them lives Alila, an intelligent and active girl, who tries to equilibrate her life between her job and her studies. One day in a park she meets Raiziar, a strange and misterious guy.

In the other world, a very idylic kingdom, where a powerful Matriarch called the Big Mother reigns, the Evil begins to spread itself... It comes from the Patriarchs, who want to take back the power they had in the past. A magic object can make the Matriarch stronger but it is lost. Only Raiziar, the link between the two realities, can find it – but first he has to wake up the power of his nine tatoos.

Treasons, turns, escapements and a lot of action will disturb the life of all of them! And none in these worlds will be safe. But Raiziar can count on Alila's help – and also on the help of the Big Mother's pythonesses.



LISBOA: UM SONHO, UM PESADELO
(Lisbon: a dream, a nightmare)

Written alongside with Rosana Rios and published by Editora do Brasil, this book is an adventure full of emotions that begins in Brazil and ends in Portugal.

Doroteia had an heritage but to receive it she has to live 6 months in Lisbon. The problem is that the girl hates to travel – and she doesn't like Portugal neither. Toni's dream is to visit this country. Reading Dorotea's complaints in her blog makes him furious. He had a cerebral vascular accident and the left side of his body is totally paralised. Nevertheless they become friends and Toni will travel by Doroteia's eyes. What they didn't konw is the cruel intrigue which hides itself under the appearence of a simple trip. Handle with it won't be easy for them!

The social webs' world and the technology of communication envolve the characters with lots of turns, secrets, surprises and confusion. In between Doroteia and Toni discover a romantic old story - and a new love for them. Illustrations by Jorge Mateus, a Portuguese artist.
