MAIRA PARULA was born in Porto Alegre and was raised in Rio de Janeiro, where she graduated in Languages and Literature at the Federal University.

She also has a secondary blog, Poemas Cubas e Torneiras [Poems, Big Bowls and Faucets], with a collection of her drafts and texts, and started writing for the online magazine Mallarmargens in 2012. 

Maira contributed to the short stories anthology Blog de Papel [Paper Blog] published in 2005 and, one year later, published her first book Não feche seus olhos esta noite [Don't Close Your Eyes Tonight].

She also works as a proofreader and text editor at publishers in Rio de Janeiro, besides having translated Bret Easton Ellis, Eli Gottlieb, Noam Chomsky, and John Grisham, among others.
