ABOUT THE WRITER
Ana Luca™ is the writer and artist of the poetry collection, “The People We Meet”. This collection shares stories about moments and people that shape us in life. It is a series of relatable, short narrative poems that highlights the relationships we have with ourselves and with others. The purpose of the text is to help readers process their personal experiences, recognize their worth in times it is questioned, and feel less alone in their circumstances.
As a child, Luca dreamed of becoming an author and illustrator. She drew inspiration from the imaginary worlds created in children’s books by authors Shel Silverstein, Beverly Cleary, and Roald Dahl. When she realized that her words have power and can change people's lives, she felt compelled to share her writing.
Words are our most powerful weapons and medicine, capable of weighing people down or lifting them up. Ana Luca’s mission is to use her words to uplift readers so that their hearts are instilled with hope, comfort, and motivation to live as their best selves.
