Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, he soon discovered his vocation for writing. He worked as a director, theater actor, songwriter and journalist.

A year later, he wrote 'The Pilgrimage', an autobiographical novel that is considered the beginning of his career. In the following year, COELHO published 'The Alchemist'.
