Ana Clara was born in Brazil and grew up around New York State. Throughout her 13 years of life, she has enjoyed a wide variety of activities—from soccer to basketball to knitting to sewing. Some of these came and went, but two did not: writing and reading. Ever since she could speak, she yearned to be a part of the world of letters. Her passion for writing began in elementary school and progressed onward. She currently attends middle school and is continuing to develop her writing abilities with the help of incredible teachers and friends. She lives in the Garden State with her parents, her sister, and their dog and two birds. This is her first book.
