Hi! If you stopped by, you probably know my name is Eric Novello. I am an author and translator, and from time to time I write music lyrics for my singer sister. I write contemporary books for young adult readers and fantasy books for adults, just to mix it up. Every title has a foot on reality and another in my strange world, in variable proportions. Wizards and cats of smoke? Speaking dolls trapped in bottles? Friends fighting against a fundamentalist government? That's my thing. I've worked on so much that you would begin to yawn if I were to tell you now. So let's get straight to the point: I was born in Rio de Janeiro and moved to São Paulo in 2007. I think feminism is important, that homophobia should be criminalized and that the world could do with less assholes and grimaces. I read compulsively, I love movies and series and I'm constantly creating playlists out there. I collect Funkos
(also compulsively?), I cultivate cacti and succulents, and I am the human pet of a Maine coon called Odin. In the off-hours, I build empires in Civilization and cool my head on my PlayStation, never running from a good Mortal Kombat fight or a stroll through Arkham.
