About Maíra Rayanne
Maíra Rayanne is a Brazilian-American author from Miami, FL whose nonfiction writing focuses on self-empowerment, challenges, love, loss, relationships, and the power of the human spirit. She is fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
After experiencing a life-changing event, she is also a suicide prevention and aftercare advocate, having received accredited certification in said field. She currently leads a Survivors of Suicide support group for those who have lost loved ones to suicide in the Atlanta area.
Her heartfelt debut memoir, Georgia Haven: A Love Story Across States and Time is about love gained, lost, and regained - and the journey we take to find ourselves and the sacrifices we make in the name of this all-encompassing emotion. Her second memoir, Beyond These Green Eyes: A Memoir of Fragmented Pieces and Rediscovery, is a collection of personal narratives and a prequel to Georgia Haven, where she compiles her most poignant experiences thus far through various past and present snapshots, from romantic love to family ties to lingering childhood memories. Her third memoir, currently in the works, is centered on grief loss, death, and spirituality, and expected to be released sometime in 2020.
