João Ferreira was born on May 3rd 1995, in Vila Franca de Xira. His interest in reading started when he was little, with the stories he read and submerged into. Writting his first story has been his dream ever since. At the age of 23 he starts writting short stories during his free time and exploring the different genres to see which one suited him best. After a few successes and failures, horror claimed victory. During that period, he majored in Political Science at Superior Institute for Social and Political Sciences, University of Lisbon. “The Baron of Castle Schloss” is his first work, in the horror genre, to present himself to the world and to all those who enjoy horror.
