When he, in 1992, suggested to his publishers
an improving in the brazilian´s pocket
book graphic appearance, got astonished with
the carelessness all of them showed about his
project. It wasn´t interesting for any
publisher to get his books in condition to
reach a really brain-worked public target,
do not mention it to compete in a international
He gave up than, the pockets to devote himself
right to bigger books, better worked ones in
the literary purpose and with a higher graphic
quality. But Ryoki faced another problem: no
brazilian printing-office could breath while
publishing and distribute his phenomenal production:
about six new titles a month.
Ryoki Inoue has been a target of the main newspapers
and magazines all around the world, from "Veja", "IstoÉ", "Manchete", "O

his vehment and long Literary production,
since 1993, Ryoki Inoue places the International
Guinnes Book of Records, as the man who most
wrote and published books all around the
When he got to the score of a thousand books, with “E Agora, Presidente?” (prefaced by the journalist Alexandre Garcia), Ryoki decided for a changing on his literary career, leaving behind the pocket books and starting writing bigger romances, published with his own name. His subjects are simply everything, life, day-by-day, social discussions, histories about ordinary people and not so ordinary people.
When seeing Ryoki in the Guinness Book, Matt Moffett, american journalist of the Wall Street Journal, got his curiosity awaken to the writer’s creations process, wanting to see to believe, how someone to produce successful stories in such a small time could. So, he defied the writer and came to São José dos Campos (where Ryoki used to live that time), by the end on January 1996. A week latter, Moffett told was born Ryoki’s book – Sequestro Fast Food, created in one night, more necessarily from 23h30 to 4h – in one of the most famous newspaper in the world.
With 1.283 books, from his own hands, published, his compulsory production didn’t stop ever. Sometimes, he used to write three romances a day, working all night on.
In his opinion, the secret of the creative process is in 98% of sweat, 1% of talent and 1%of luck. Moreover, discipline and application are the motive that make him to be sit in front of his computer and don’t leave until the end of his new job.
Ryoki didn’t stop writing: he produced several romances, worked as a ghost writer to famous people, wrote scripts and, with the objective to perfect his knowledge on the spying field – obviously to make better romances – he dedicated during three years on the research and studying of Competitive Intelligence and he make innumerable books and articles translations for companies of this branch.
Nowadays, Ryoki Inoues’s objective is to produce a romance a year, two in maximum.
