Anya Damiron was born in Santo Domingo on October 15, 1982. From the start she was a curious girl who dreamed up wonderful things. As an adult, she worked in advertising as a copywriter and on the creative team for several Dominican advertising agencies. It was this that helped Anya discover her love for creating ideas and working with both images and writing. After her first book, Just, was published in 2005, she began to work on Lucia’Stories. Since 2008, she has self-published fourteen picture books and has created more than 25 products to promote the series, resulting in over sixty thousand book sales in the Dominican Republic.
