Nàna Páuvoli was born in 1974 in Rio de Janeiro. She has a degree in History and taught for many years at high school level. She began writing at age 11, competing with a friend which of the two would write the best story. There was no winner, but while her friend followed a different path, Nana fell in love with writing and never stopped again. She won awards for poetry and chronicles but feared there would be no audience for her work.
However, in 2012, she decided to share excerpts from one of her books on a site, and the success was amazing, a hit on the internet. New readers came in hundreds to the site by the day. Now she has a huge work on digital Amazon and is often seen on the best seller list of the bookstore. All her texts have a high content of eroticism.
