F. A. Hershey


Of Italian background, I was born and raised in Brazil and had strong influences from my grandmother, who had always been an avid reader herself, and who first introduced me to the path of literature.

I created a lifetime bond with my great-grandmother, who gave me my first insights into philosophy (though neither of us knew there was a name for it).

The first book that made me officially an obsessive reader is called “My sweet orange tree” by Jose Mauro de Vasconcelos.

After that, I could not put a book down.

I only started writing when I came to London in 2003. Ever since High School back in Brazil, I’ve loved studying English like nothing else. But when I came to live in England there was that “click”, and I thought: why not?

I’m also studying for a BA Hons Degree in English Language and Literature (what a surprise…), while looking after my 6-year-old son, and my dear husband who always supports my ideals.
