Innovative Brazilian Author Suzy Hekamiah Is Brining Her Characters Into Virtual Reality

Author Suzy Hekamiah has had a successful career as a writer from Brazil to the US; she is a multi published writer in Fantasy and Horror and wants to bring her characters to virtual reality

At age five, Brazilian native Suzy Hekamiah fell in love with the transformative power of character creation. As a child, Suzy learned literature could help her face daily problems, like loneliness and not having a lot of friends. What started as a child innocently writing, eventually became her mission as an adult. She wanted to transform people’s lives through stories.

Poems were her first outlet of escape. Today, Suzy has a collection of more than 2000 published poems. In addition to poems, short stories, novels and screenplays are also in his curriculum. She has been published in Portuguese, English and French, but plans to continue spreading her writing all over the world. As a short story writer alone, Suzy has already  participated in more than sixty anthologies and has won several literary awards, including the Best Fantasy Book in 2008. 

Suzy has a struggle to face; she is blind in one eye. As a result of her accomplishments, she was voted to be a representative of writers with visual impairments.

Today, the author is investing in an innovative idea; she is taking her characters to Virtual Reality exhibitions. She studied Digital Technologies, worked as a programmer and screenwriter and has a team of illustrators. In a world that is increasingly adapting to the use of artificial intelligence, Suzy aims to transform her books into something increasingly interactive for her readers.

Suzy’s ideas caught the attention of a game startup in Mexico, which is closing the launch of video games based on her books.

“I have always seen a connection between Art and Technology. I believe that both concepts carry together the desire to transform the world and that is my goal. I want to adapt my ideas to the historical context in which we live now.” 

Ever since she started speaking at schools and book fairs for children and pre-teens between the ages of 8 and 13, Suzy realized that writing wasn’t just about stories she wanted to tell. 

“I realized that being a writer is something that comes with a lot of responsibility. Our voice becomes a reference to generations very easily. Young people ask for tips on how to be a writer because they can relate to the characters portrayed and the problems they face, and that is what inspires me when I’m writing.”

Suzy comes from a generation of artists who have experienced several changes in technology, and understand how it can help expand the relationship between art and the public. Her decision to study computer science and business to expand her literary universe to other platforms shows the modern vision that this author is bringing to the literary business.
