About the author

Antonio Carlos Pinto

Hello! My name is Antonio Carlos Pinto, and I'm delighted that you've decided to read my books.<br><br>I was born in 1983 in the quiet town of Maranguape, Ceará. I'm a Brazilian novelist known for combining dark and hopeful fantasy elements in a unique style that I created and call "Sombrioespério".<br><br>With this new literary style, I write fantasy fiction stories, and my creative focus is on romantic tales involving paranormal creatures such as vampires, witches, and werewolves. You'll certainly find a bit of magic, light, and darkness scattered throughout the pages of my books.<br><br>In my day-to-day life, I work as a house painter in Fortaleza, Ceará, a profession I adore. In my spare time, besides writing a few chapters for my books, I enjoy studying subjects related to physics and cosmology, as well as astronomy, urban legends, and medieval history.<br><br>My debut book is a paranormal fantasy romance titled "The Elia Chronicles by Gareth", available for purchase in the best online bookshops as an e-book, paperback, and hardcover.<br><br>My books have been translated into various languages and have appeared multiple times on the lists of world-renowned bookshops. Furthermore, I've been recognised by literary critics in Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States, receiving praise for my narratives that transport readers to realms of fantasy and science fiction, even in the face of the dark themes I address.<br><br>Currently, I continue to write new fantasy fiction works, driven by my love for literature and the mission to share my stories with the world.<br><br>My journey as a writer is a celebration of the strength of the human spirit, which persists in fighting and believing in dreams even in the face of life's challenges.
