I've been in love with writing stories ever since I was a child. I've always had such a fertile imagination and everything that happened in my life became inspiration for my fantasy fiction (and that hasn't changed). I started drawing short comics with chalk and colored pens. Nothing too detailed or pretty. The focus was the story, not the drawing. I used to play "wrestling" with objects from my pencil case. I've spent so many classes imagining an epic battle of "The Eraser Monk" against his evil foes, such as "Mighty WhiteGlue." I've already broken and spoiled many pens, erasers, staplers, and glue sticks that way!
I've never thought of being a writer or even writing at all before. I started when I began to play TTRPGs (Tabletop Role-playing Games) with some classmates. We created our own characters and role-played with them in a medieval fantasy world. I've become quite fond of writing "backstories" for my characters. I tend to make them detailed, emotional, and most of the time, tragic. With so many backstories and scripts, I began creating my own fantasy world and writing a book about it. It's called Desert's Roses. I'm still in the first chapters.
I'm not very much in touch with most of my family. I live with my mother (51y) and my brother (15y). My mother and I have a very close relationship, and I'm very thankful for having her in my life. Since the beginning, she was always by my side, comforting me when I was at my lowest. She is my inspiration and she welcomed me into the world of literature and art. Her passion for it inspired me deeply and is the main reason I'm here today doing what I love!
My brother on the other hand isn't much of a talker. We live together and sleep in the same room, but can spend the entire day without talking to each other. It's not that we don't like one another, it's just the way we ended up finding balance in our relationship.
I have a little dog called Elizabeth the 4th (or just Lisa for short). She's a little piece of heaven, despite being quite annoying sometimes.
I love TTRPGs. I love being able to role-play my characters with my friends and to cast spells, punch buddies in the face, while having lots and lots of fun. I'm playing a campaign called "Desert's Roses" (it has the same name as the book I'm writing, since it is about the campaign in the first place). I've written an entire continent full of different countries, political conflicts, drama, and morally questionable characters. Currently, my party (term designated to a group of players in this type of game) are working with groups of mercenaries in an attempt to dismiss a noble of her political post. A plot involving human trafficking, the mystery disappearance of a noble family, moral debates, and a plague that is consuming the poorer population. All of these stories are original works by me and my friends.
That's quite the tricky question. My life and the country I live in is so naturalized that I could not imagine, in fact, who and what I would be if I lived somewhere else. If I had to describe my life in three words, I'd say: Art, Passion, Calmness.
