I am an artist; illustrator and graphic designer who writes on my free time. But with all the imagination I have running lose, there came some stories… And there came some books!

I am born and grown up in Brazil, however I live in Mid-Norway with my beloved husband, in a tiny valley surrounded by mountains and with very few neighbours.

When I’m not doing artwork and illustration for clients, I’m doing woodcarving, painting ornaments, painting artworks for myself, and so on. Love Arts, History, Heavy Metal and Dark things.

Until my early teens, I did only write or draw when I was inspired, when I felt the urge to do it. Since I was determined to make a living out of illustration and graphic design that needed to change. I learned how to keep inspired every day, no matter what and how in order to do that, I literally had to "kill the muse". I do browse art every day and I do work with it as well, though most digitally.
Regarding writing, I jot down ideas every day in my "idea book" and in the back of my mind. I do not not set aside time to write regularly since it is a hobby and has secondary importance compared to drawing or painting for me. But from times to times, I add writing to my schedule, when I have a new story ready to be drafted, like once or twice a year. Then I write for that period, let's say a month or two, max, but always after my work day and/or during weekends. Cheers and thanks for asking :)(less)

Book 2, which happens in the countryside, was inspired in Norway - but just the setting. The lead male character's family style was based in a Brazilian/Estadunidense back-in-time family culture that has difficulty adapting to our times. Book 3, which maybe will come next year will be back in the city setting. Cheers!(less)

I came across Andy Carrington’s work here at GoodReads. I had interviewed Harry Whitewolf and he liked and shared the post. After that we became acquaintances. Andy’s bio and his books got me all curious. I have always been a non-conformist, so the ideas behind his book titles and covers were something I assimilated with. I think we live in a world where the systems have failed and Andy, like M...

“In these times of Darkness, I keep dreaming of a better tomorrow, and praying my soul won't be corrupted."

These are Gudrun's words and thoughts. She is living in a troubled world, where only the strong can be free.

She is a Fantasy character you find on The Art of Isis Sousa & Guests!”
Isis Sousa, Art of Isis Sousa & Guests: Fantasy Digital Painting Techniques & Video Lectures

“And so it continued from one generation to another; history became stories, stories became legends, legends became myths, and myths became children’s tales.”
Isis Sousa, The Chosen

“All in all, Tolkien fans are as varied, remarkable and marvelous as the books and the worlds that they share. They make me feel a little like a Hobbit who glimpses colourful strangers passing but has never left the Shire.”
John Howe

“The pain of dying will surely be nothing, for the pain of love is so much stronger and agonizing.”

“He loved her to the point of madness, to obsession and even sacrifice. He wasn't Berdikhan, and he wouldn't make her Zafira. He'd rob her of her Gift, but she'd live. If he had to destroy Corruption, Conclave and himself, she'd live.”
Grace Draven, Master of Crows

“And will you love me for a day? A year? A lifetime?" She knew the answer but wanted to hear him say it in that beautiful, shattered voice.
"Beyond that," he whispered, eyes shining with the tempest of emotion he'd held in check until now. "Beyond the reign of false gods and meddlesome priests. Beyond al Zafira when her bright stars fade.”
Grace Draven, Master of Crows

“Men who fear demons see demons everywhere.”
