A little about me

new_bio_pic

Yep, that’s me!

Renata F. Barcelos lives in Brazil with her teenager daughter, Maria, constantly complaining about the heat and dreaming of moving somewhere snowy.

She has a Law Degree, but promises never to use it. She prefers to study and teach languages and to write. Facing a three-hour daily commute, Renata uses this time to listen to audiobook after audiobook, plot, and write. Sometimes she hurts herself walking and writing at the same time–forgetting to look where she’s going.

Her characters usually don’t respect her wishes, taking the stories to places she never imagined they could go; she loves it when that happens.

Renata is always working on a new novel, and so far has published the books Mean, My Sore Hush-a-Bye, Merge, and the Myself in Blue series.

  1. I feel bad for your characters! It’s lovely to meet a fellow author. Do you have any bits of your writing on this blog? I’d love to read some 🙂

  2. Hi Vera! I’m glad you feel sorry for them, that was the plan! 😀 I’ll post the first chapter of “My sore Hush-a-bye” here soon.
    Thank you for commenting, I’m going to check your blog now. It’s really great to connect to fellow authors.

  4. Hi Renata,

    I love that outlook! “Her characters usually don’t respect her wishes, taking the stories to places she never imagined they could go; she loves it when that happens.”

    That’s what happens with my characters too. They tell me what they would do and how they would speak. We are what they call ‘seat-of-the-pantser’ writers, who are led by the characters, rather having a set plot for the story.

    That’s how I wrote my children’s fantasy “Ifflepinn Island”, full of cliffhangers that the hero led me to, which I think you would enjoy reading (and hopefully reviewing 🙂 ) That is, if you love The Hobbit and the Narnia books.

    Warmly,
    Muz
