Since a long time ago, the idea of creating a literary work where I could combine medieval historical elements with science fiction echoed inside my head. My new novel Holy Remedy, represents the answer to such anxiety and also, a new cycle in my life.
My name is J. G. Martins. I majored in telecommunications engineering, but my real passion lies in creating stories and doing creative work; be it in the form of novels or music. Since childhood I have shown abilities to create; notebooks full of short stories, long hours of study in conservatories and several musical instruments can provide proof of this.
However, my love for Physics and Mathematics pulled me closer to engineering, and for a good time I worked in such field.
The overwhelming reality was that I would never achieve the peace I desperately yearned for in that area; my mind needed to escape the bytes and electromagnetic waves, to visit other worlds that were locked inside my brain’s right hemisphere.
I’m now in the place where I always wanted to be.
