BIO

Anya writes, creates, collects, story-tells, rents, and sells picture books. She is an award-winning children’s book author, who loves producing and promoting books, that has founded several projects related to books in the Dominican Republic.

She began her career as a writer in 2008 by launching a collection of illustrated books that motivated children to be curious, to dream, to invent and to use their imagination and never stoped writing.

Since then, she continued to write and publish her books independently, until two of her books were published internationally, in English, Catalan, Valencian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Korean ​​by the publishers: Algar, Animallibres, Bromera, Wydawnictwo Dwukropek, Folian Publishing House and EduNTech Co., Ltd.

Over time, she started creating social impact projects around children’s books and began storytelling in 2015 having presentations every weeks in several malls of her country, achieving a positive change in her community.

She also promotes family reading by sharing and renting her big collection of books from other countries with her project Renta a Cuento and now she has a book corner full of books curated by her where families can go read together for free.

BOOKS

Over the last 10 years, I have self-published 14 picture books in the Dominican Republic, some of which were part of social impact projects. I believe we can help build a better future if we encourage kids to be curious, to dream, to invent, to be kind, and to help others, showing them how much their actions can change the world. You can find all those titles below:

But animals are too scared to try to find out who is the mysterious being that terrifies them every day. Thanks to a courageous wasp, everything changes unexpectedly.

SuperKids

In addition to a Gold Mom’s Choice Award, this book won a Gold Medal Moonbeam Award in 2015, a silver medal at the Independent Publisher Book Awards 2016, and two Gold medals on the Elit Awards 2016 — one for Best Children’s Ebook (7 & Under) and one for Best Book Website.
