A bit about me

  • I was born in Rio de Janeiro and came to England when I was 14
  • I’m a rubbish cook
  • When I was young I used to write new dialogue for characters I loved, because...why not?
  • We always had dogs in Brazil, but that changed when we moved to England! I adopted my first cat at university (a stray we named Bird). Then came Matey, Gipsy (another stray), Loki and Thor - not all at once but I loved them all very much
  • My grandparents had a farm and I spent most summers amongst horses, pigs, chickens, dogs and cows

 

  • I once had a pet duck (can you tell I love animals?)
  • As a kid, I had a tendency to fall in love with cartoon characters - Hank from Dungeons and Dragons became a mild obession at one point!
  • I have dispraxia (numbers can sometimes send me into a spin!)
  • I love graphic novels
  • I'm a very slow reader
  • My first language is Portuguese
  • I am learning the piano at 48
