What I like to write

I have tons of influences. From Brazilian telenovelas, manga, movies, books, there's just so much! Instead of listing books, I'll list some elements that guide my writing.

  • I love to see characters grow and change
  • Character emotions for me matter more than the physical connection, but sometimes it's amazing to see those emotions materializing physically.
  • Magic is such a wonderful metaphor for our inner strength, talents, self esteem, and even our connection with the divine.
  • Sometimes dangerous, dark characters can represent dark parts of ourselves.
