Àngels Navarro was born in Barcelona in January the 18th in 1958. She has a degree in psychology, with a speciality in psychomotor activity and therapy through games. She has carried out many studies, exhibitions, conferences and published works on this subject. Her interest in the development of the mind has led her to her current job: ingenuity games in all its multiple and various applications therapeutic, preventive, formative or recreational- and in all its different formats: books, crafts, workshops, pastimes, conferences, big events, company training, multimedia, app for mobiles and advergaming (a combination of online games and advertising).
She is a regular contributor to the pastime section of El Periódico de Catalunya and the magazines Escuela and Cavall Fort. She published her first book in November 2003 and, currently, she has released over fifty titles. Besides her individual books, she has done a collection of 4 educational notebooks and has developed two collections of 21 books on brain training: Activa tu Mente for Periódico de Catalunya; and Ejercita tu Mente for the Portuguese newspapers Público and Expresso and the Greek newspaper Kathimerini. Two companies, Ópticas Primera and Tulipán, bought a couple of her books to promote their products, and three more have been acquired by SEP (Secretaría de Educación Pública de México) to distribute in Mexican schools and public libraries.
Many of her books are fascinating pieces of handricraft work. She offers formats that push beyond the possibilities of the paper book. That is why is not surprising that she has also explored other fields: audiovisual and multimedia projects, TV programmes, a collection of 12 CD-ROMs and 11 Internet brain training games. Her work has been a success in ten markets. And over 4,500,000 copies of her books, notebooks and CD-ROMs have been sold only in Catalonia, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Mexico.
