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 picture books, that has founded several projects related to them 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 publish her books independently, until two of her titles were published internationally in 2018, translated to 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, Anya started creating social impact projects around children’s books and began storytelling in 2015 having presentations every week 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.
