About

I was born in Rio de Janeiro and knew I wanted to become a writer since I was a teenager. After traveling through South America, North Africa, Mexico and Europe in the 1960s, I settled in Brazil and wrote lyrics for Brazilian musicians. I wrote my first book, Hell Archives, in 1982. Four years later, I made the pilgrimage to Saint James of Compostella, a 500-mile road in northwestern Spain. My experiences there would become the basis of The Pilgrimage. I wrote The Alchemist, a story about a shepherd on a spiritual journey to the Egyptian pyramids looking for a treasure, the following year.
      Since then I published a dozen books. You can see all titles in my Wikipedia page > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulo_Coelho
