Fabio Paiva Reis

Historian, Doctor in History at the University of Minho in Portugal and creator of the site Spirito Sancto, where I share historical documents of Espirito Santo. Amateur photographer and assumed nerd, I started investing in literature in 2016 when I wrote my first novel, Kiss Me in Barcelona.


F abio Paiva Reis was born on February 3, 1986, and is a historian, with a doctor degree from the University of Minho, Portugal.

Born in Vitória, capital of Espirito Santo, he graduated in History from the Federal University of Espírito Santo in 2008 and, in the middle of 2009, left his family and friends and moved to São Paulo, where he got a master's degree in Social History at the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP). Ten days after defending his dissertation in October 2011, he boarded an airplane and went to the Old World to start his doctorate and continue his research at the University of Minho in Portugal.

Returning to Brazil in mid-2013, he began to focus on personal projects. He began a research for a project of historical documents of Espirito santo and also to write his first novel, Kiss me in Barcelona.

It was in 2016 that he decided to change his current job and invest in his dreams. Both projects were put into practice and brought important fruits in his personal and professional life. On the Spirito Sancto website, Fabio shares historical documents from Espirito Santo, commented on his Youtube channel. Kiss me in Barcelona, ​​his first novel, is semi-autobiographical and tells the story of a young man who struggles with his problems when he finds himself in love with his ex-girlfriend. Both projects were selected and awarded in the Funcultura 2016, a grand from the State Secretariat of Culture of Espírito Santo.

Today, Fabio has a beautiful wife, Thais, who inspired his first novel, with which she has three adopted kittens: Jade, Mimi and Kitty.

Kiss me in Barcelona was released in 2017.

Even though I dreamed about the success ofKiss me in Barcelona, I never imagined that it would be awarded before it was even printed.
