    I am from Brazil, and had the opportunity to live in San Francisco for a while. Seven long years learning about the city, finding out how it works when you don’t have documents, a friend to help or a place to go.
    One day I took the subway and shared a seat with two girls wearing beehives. The same week they found Amy Winehouse dead.
    It didn’t take me too long to start writing my own pop detective story and hitchhiker guide. A journalist from Brazil arrives in SF and finds out that Amy is still alive and living there.
    My awkward tribute to the city: “Ain’t Miss Beehive”, which I released as an eBook on Amazon.
    I’m sort of spreading the word. I read about your book about The Smiths, my favorite band for the short period I lived in England during the 80’s.
    It’s really complicated when you’re an indie writer. But you have the website and it would be nice if you could check out some samples on Amazon, maybe tell some friends.
    Thanks for your attention.
