Presentation by Tanya Tynjälä

My name is Tanya Tynjälä and I am a Peruvian science fiction, fantasy and flash fiction writer. I live in Finland, but I have also lived in France and the Philippines. I have published four books: three for young adults and one flash fiction for adults.

My children’s books are used as reading materials in several Latin American countries like Peru, Colombia, Bolivia and Chile. My last book is going to be printed by the Ministry of Education in Peru, to be distributed in all the public schools. We are talking of almost 40,000 copies.

One of my stories has been included in the book Texto 4ème sec. A secondary school book published in Belgium (Vincent Rousseau and others. Editions Érasme. Namur 2012). I am also a blogger. I write for Amazing Stories, for example.

I am a mother and a grandmother. Unfortunately, two years ago my husband died and I am still trying to cope with that.

My goal is to give all my time to my writing, so I have decided to make a Patreon page. Please, visit it and I hope you will find my writing interesting.

Tanya participates in the mentor project of Colorit – The Colourful Pen.
