What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I find all my titles inside my stories.
SO MUCH MORE tells the story of Markus Blackthorn and Hannah Kristensen.
Markus has it all, including a Midas touch. But when his wife walks out the door, taking away his four-year-old daughter, he is blindsided. And his devastation grows when his ex wins physical custody of his daughter because of his promiscuous behavior. But all hope is not lost. He has a good plan to win back his daughter. All he needs is to hire a fake wife.
Hannah Kristensen has led a somewhat calm life until tragedy strikes, taking her mother away and leaving her drowning in debt. Just when she thinks she thinks things can’t get any worse, she loses her job being unable to pay the loan she got from a New York mafia lord!
He’s looking for a woman who can pass as his perfect wife—sex included, no-emotions attached—until custody is settled.
She’s looking for a way to pay off her debt before she ends up with her legs broken—or worse.
They are a pair that should never worked and yet they got SO MUCH MORE…
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Of course. My fave time to write is after midnight until the sun begins to peak in the horizon, time when I must go to bed. And no, I am not a vampire, nor I write paranormal romance…
I drink tons of ice-tea during the summer, which means almost the whole year, as I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. During our brief winter, hot tea. I am always listening to music, depending on the scene I am writing it can be Pink Floyd, Imagine Dragons, Rihanna, or classic music. Sometimes, when I am very concentrated in a scene I can easily forget to eat…
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I love classics, from Greeks to moderns, English, French, and Russian literature, but I can't say I have authors or books that have influenced me. Kafka, George Orwell, Tolstoi, DeBeauvoir, but I'd say life influences me and I have worked for 22 years as a lawyer, so I was used to tell my clients stories in a way to get judges convinced.
What are you working on now?
My currently WIP is kind of a sequel of So Much More, untitled so far. It is a stand alone but it will feature Benedict Lockheart, partner to Markus Blackthorn, my hot billionaire in So Much More! And this alpha bookish billionaire is…blind!
I love to create characters driven stories and all my heroes have dark pasts and are put under duress.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am still learning this "promoting thing". But, yes, Goodreads is a good website…if one knows how to use it. (Not my case, yet.)
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write, write, and write again.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Hmm… I am still looking forward to hearing it.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Love Painted in Red, featuring Tavish Uilleam, a war veteran, a Scottish billionaire, whose heart no woman has thawed yet!
Ops! Not mine? Well, that is not really fair… I'd have to make a big, big, big list…
