Jessica Macedo is 26 years old and has published more than a hundred books. The inspiration for writing comes from a very young age. In an interview with the GeekPop News portal, he shared some of this process and inspirations to develop the narrative of the work “Herdeira Escondida”. Soon you will be able to read the full review of the book here on our website.

First, tell us a bit about yourself.

I come from Minas Gerais, I am twenty-six years old. I live in Belo Horizonte, with my husband and three cats. I attended the Federal University of Minas Gerais and graduated in Animation Cinema and Digital Arts. I love films, books and series, especially investigative ones. I already thought about being a criminal expert while I was in school (laughs), but with writing I can go through the most diverse professions.

How was born this desire and this desire to write?

I’ve been writing since I can understand myself. Everything can become a story and feed my imagination. At the age of nine, he was already doing plays directed by classmates. At thirteen a friend suggested I write a book and at fourteen I published my first book, Vale das Sombras.

About the book »hidden heiress“, what can you present about it? What can people find by having this reading?

In “Herdeira Escondida” we will follow Aurora, a sixteen-year-old girl who lived with her family in a country town. On her birthday, an evil wizard rushes to kidnap her, but is stopped by a prince. On that day, she will discover that she was adopted, that she was sent to the future to be protected from her real father and that she is the last heiress of the most powerful clan of witches.

And about the story, what inspired you to develop this narrative? Tell us a bit about what you wanted during this story development process.

Hidden Scion comes from the Magic Dimension universe, which was created when I was sixteen and already has nine books, with arcs of other characters. Herdeira Escondida has new protagonists, but brings events after the end of the Power Trilogy.

In a national scenario, fantasy literature is less explored by readers, although there are countless hidden works worth exploring. How is it for you, also as a woman, to be involved in this work of fantastic literature, knowing also your place as an author? How do you see the possibilities of your work taking shape?

I believe there is a huge audience for fantastic works, especially among young people who consume my books. As a woman, the female presence has developed a lot lately, I have followed the advent of several colleagues, mainly in works “by women for women”.

Do you have any other future projects in your writing career? Can you share some of these plans with us?

Writing is a dream come true because it has become my profession, I devote myself to it on a daily basis and I can assure you that many projects are to come. The Dimension of Magic universe has plenty of room to expand, so there will be more books with other characters.

Is there anything else about you and/or your work that you would like to add?

I have several books, over a hundred published works, with various genres that appeal to different audiences.

What would you say to someone who wants to start writing but doesn’t feel motivated to start yet?

You can start by organizing your ideas and creating a script. The writing routine is very important to me and can be used by anyone, dividing the project into daily goals.

And if they want to know more about your work, what are the platforms and ways to find you?
