Ana Antunes

I have been writing and composing since the day that I created a prelude, composing some notes (which I still have recorded on my brain) on a small piano toy at the age of three. But I first put my two feet at the theatre, playing the flute to a big audience at Mackenzie Institute, when I was seven years old. Since then I fell in love with the performing world. Then I graduated in Arts in 1990 with license in Artistic Education at the University FAAP in Sao Paulo. I started my career at an early age, performing in the Opera Carmina Burana at the Opera House in Sao Paulo, also dancing for the Young Ballet of Sao Paulo, at The Nutcracker for the Metropolitan Ballet Theatre in Washington D.C. I started to write and illustrate my poetic books and fictions when I was nine, just to entertain myself but I always dreamed of making other kids enjoy my creations as well. When I was eleven years old I created a series of comic books, which I still keep on my hometown treasure island of Santos in Brazil. Since then, I wrote novels for adults based upon my life and Picture Books and Nursery Rhymes for children. I wrote poems and short-stories for an anthology by Mackenzie Publishing (1984). I illustrated the cover of the magazine Magia in 1990 (Editora Ondas). My poems were published on the National Literary Magazine "Mirante" (sept/2006) and on the ezine Aphelion (July/2007). One of my stories is part of the anthology Spiritual Visitations by Zumaya Publications and I recently published "Life is Too Short...Make it a Big Shot" by Devine Destines. My writings can also be found on another anthology "A Thousand Voices" by Adventures Books of Seattle.
