Profile Bio Text
Mayra Dias Gomes (born December 15, 1987) is a Brazilian author, journalist, columnist and media personality.
She is the oldest daughter of controversial Brazilian playwright Dias Gomes and actress Bernadeth Lyzio. Dias Gomes died in 1999, in a car crash in São Paulo.
Mayra wrote her first novel, Fugalaça (2007), when she was seventeen. The book was written during Mayra’s battle with depression. It helped her deal with depression and became an underground phenomenon - an immediate portrait of the immediacy of a generation unable to deal with frustrations. Satine, the main character, is the author’s alter ego, who just like the narrator, suffered with her father’s sudden death during early years, and found herself in a world of drugs, obsessive passions and rock’n’roll.
Her second novel, One Thousand and One Nights of Silence, came out in 2009. It tells the story of a lonely girl named Clara, who is in search of a true human bond. Abandoned by her biological parents, left on the altar by her fiancé, and an orphan from her adoptive mother, she lives a life without meaning. She is unable to join society and suffers from insomnia. In a brave search for a human bond, she will go through different sceneries such as a job on a flower shop and a city devastated by drugs and prostitution.
Mayra Dias Gomes worked for three years as a music reporter for the largest Brazilian newspaper, Folha de São Paulo. She later became a biweekly addition and now writes a gonzo column called “On The Road”.
She also a collaborator and host for Spin Earth, SPIN Magazine’s globalized wesite.
In 2009 she hosted a literature column on MTV.
Mayra has been the star of many editorials and posed for Playboy in 2009. 0E Magazine released their first edition with Mayra on the cover. She has also spoken at book fairs and debates, and appears in a music video by the band Bastardz.
In 2009, she was invited by the Finnish government to go to Helsinki to cover an extreme metal festival and interview important Finnish bands.
