Bianca Claudia Staines is an Anglo-Italian writer based in New Zealand. Born in England, she grew up in Italy, in the medieval town of Perugia (Umbria) and, since a very young age, her heart revolved around writing and wildlife.
Having built strong didactic foundations on Classical Studies and Literature, she later became involved in animal care and worked in the Carapax Centre for the safeguard of endangered tortoises in Tuscany (IT).
She moved to New Zealand in 2009 and studied Ecology and Animal Behaviour at the University of Auckland (NZ). However, after a few semesters of pure science, she started sneaking into creative writing classes at every given opportunity. After graduating, her deep passion for writing eventually led her to actively pursue a career as an author, her stories almost inevitably revolving around animals and pets.
Bianca's latest project is a young adult series named 'The Taleweavers' Adventures'. The first book, 'The Tale of Prince', has recently been released on most online retailers.
At present the author is working on the book's two sequels.
