My Author Journey

Let's learn about my journey and all that we, authors, go through to get published.

Authors need to work really hard and be very persistent. Some authors receive over 100 rejections.
I started writing in Brazil, where I got two books published, a long time ago. However, when I moved to the United States, an editor told me my books were weird. I quit. But I shouldn't have. Writing is tough, but writers are tougher. I will show some of my manuscripts before and after revision and talk about my journey.
