I’m a first-generation Portuguese Canadian and late-blooming Lusophile living in the United States with dreams of moving to Portugal one day. My name is Fernanda Viveiros Gonçalves but for reasons too numerous to mention, I use the name Fernanda Viveiros. My parents were born and raised on the strange and magical island of Flores, one of nine islands in the Azores archipelago, and a place to which I’m drawn to visit time and time again.
In real life, I’m a wife, mother and full-time editor. I enjoy reading and writing about books, ideas, ethnopsychology and Portuguese culture. I’ve held various positions in journalism, legal editing, literary event production and book publishing and have recently started a small press specializing in translations, Azorean literature, and works by Portuguese North American writers.
