Okay, let's start with something simple. What does S.B. mean?
Well, many things, really. The boring answer is that it's simply a combination of two letters of my real name in reverse order. I needed an alias at the time I wanted to start sharing my creations with the world and this was the first thing that came to mind. Like I said, boring, so let's change that and add the following: S.B. is more than an alias, it's something I use to describe my moods, the various aspects of my personality. S.B. can be Simple Being, Silly Bloke, Scientific Brain, Sesquipedalian Blabbermouth and so many other different things. I'm all that and so much more and as such not easily defined. I'm somewhat bonkers too. That was a joke by the way.

When did you first start writing?
I've been told that, at the age of three, I already knew how to read and write. I don't know if that's true or not because I don't remember that far but I've always had quite the imagination growing up. My actual first story attempts began when I was nine, influenced by sci-fi franchises like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Alien. They were cute little adventures with spaceships, lightsabers, and extraterrestrial dogs. After those, I delved into other genres and wrote a little bit of everything in my native language (I'm Portuguese, by the way) from adventure stories to classic horror and poetry. I've been writing and creating things for almost thirty years ago and I don't want to stop until the day I die (and even then I'll probably find a way to keep making new stuff from The Great Beyond).
