About the writer of the book "Time of the Sixth Sun"

Hannamari Mäkelä

The writer of the book "Time of the Sixth Sun" Hannamari Mäkelä was born in Finland in 1978. She graduated as a painter in AKI Academy of Fine Arts in The Netherlands in 2004, and has ever since had several art exhibitions and taken part to many group exhibitions both in Finland and The Netherlands.

In 2006 Mäkelä left to a journey around the world that lasted 80 days, during which a frame of reference for the book "Time of the Sixth Sun" was born. After returning from the trip she concentrated mainly in doing research about the various themes of the book and in writing about them. The work broadened and went on, and 7 years later the book was finally ready to be published. This volume of 752 pages has received very good reviews and it is being translated into English.

Mäkelä has written several articles which have been published in the Finnish magazine "Ultra". Occasionally she also works as a translator.
