(Rio de Janeiro, 1947) "Paulo Coelho is not only one of the most widely read but also one the most influential authors writting today" wrote the Bambi awards in Germany. "His books have had a life-enhancing impact on millions of people" wrote The Times in UK. To date a total of 210 translations have been sold with sales totalling almost 43 million copies. In 55 languages and published in 140 countries of the world.

Paulo Coelho has led an extreme life. Rebelliousness defined his youth. He was a hippie. He wrote popular song lyrics for some of Brazil's famous pop music stars, including Elis Regina and Raul Seixas. Shortly after, he worked as a journalist. In 1986 Paulo Coelho walked along the Road of Santiago, the ancient Spanish pilgrimage. He would later describe this experience in ‘The Pilgrimage’, published in 1987. The following year, with his second book ‘The Alchemist’, established his worldwide fame. The book is an authentic phenomenon. Other titles include ‘Brida’ (1990), ‘The Valkyries’ (1992), ‘Maktub’ (1994) - a compilation of his daily column, ‘By The River Piedra I Sat Down & Wept’ (1994), ‘The Fifth Mountain’ (1996), ‘The Manual of the Warrior of Light’ (1997); ‘Veronika Decides to Die’ (1998). His most recent novel, ‘The Devil and Miss Prym’ (2000), is a resounding success, in all the countries where it has been published to date. For more information about Paulo Coelho click here.
