Her Story


Elis Angelico is a Brazilian American who writes complex, feminist, international love stories filled with art. 


Before words took over, she taught middle schoolers in Southern California, completed half a masters in library science in D.C., mentored teenagers in Boston, and managed a job training program for homeless adults in São Paulo.


Her books are emotionally complex and explore the many ways that love is essential to enduring trauma, injustice, and pain. 


She lives in São Paulo with her daughter and her soul mate and knows her way around a spray can.
