Filipa Fonseca Silva

Filipa Fonseca Silva was born in Barreiro, in 1979. With a degree in Communications, she opted to go into advertising instead of journalism and worked as an advertising creative until 2017.

In 2011, she began her literary career with the novel Thirty Something (Nothing’s How We Dreamed It Would Be), whose English translation made her the first Portuguese author to reach Amazon’s Top 100. Since then, she has published five more novels, two comedy books and numerous press columns, short stories and essays, with some of her work published abroad.

She enjoys writing about ordinary people and creating stories that capture contemporary everyday life while also exploring timeless dilemmas.

She is a co-founder and spokesperson of the Women Writers Club in Portugal.
