Writer Biography - BIrna Avila

I was born in Bogotá - Colombia. I had been work as a creative and copy writter for almost 19 years on our own agency, my husband and I. We have two ground children.
I like to write, I think that is something that I have been doing my whole life but I only applied my skills to the advertisement, and some stories that I did for my children. Some years ago, I started to learn more about other expressions like short stories, novel and screenplay. I love movies so I want to learn, then my life star to change. We decided to leave the advertisement and do something what we really love, for me is to write and write screenplays.
