Short biography
Ana Teresa Parra Sanojo was the daughter of a wealthy Venezuelan family. She was born in Paris, a daughter of Rafael Parra Hernáiz, the Venezuelan consul there, and his wife Isabel Sanojo de Parra, and was raised partly on her family's estate near Caracas. After the death of her father, Teresa and her sisters were taken by their mother to be educated at a Catholic religious school in Spain. She settled in Paris as as an adult, but spent years travelling to European sanatoriums in search of a cure for her tuberculosis. Her first major work, the novel Iphigenia, appeared in 1924, and Souvenirs of Mamá Blanca in 1929. Their popularity made her one of her country's leading writers. Her short stories and essays were published in newspapers and magazines. She died at age 46.
