Tatiane "Tati" Bernardi Teixeira Pinto (born April 29, 1979) is a Brazilian short story writer, novelist, chronicler, screenwriter and journalist. Her works are particularly directed towards young women.


Bernardi was born in São Paulo on April 29, 1979, and is of Italian descent. She graduated in Advertising at the Mackenzie Presbyterian University and, after working on numerous advertising agencies, she became an in-house screenwriter for Rede Globo.[1] She has written for telenovelas such as Sangue Bom and A Vida da Gente, talk shows such as Amor e Sexo, and sitcoms such as Aline (based on Adão Iturrusgarai's eponymous comic strip), Dicas de um Sedutor and Meu Passado Me Condena; the latter has been broadcast by Multishow from 2012 to 2015. In 2011 she wrote her first screenplay to a full-length film, Qualquer Gato Vira-Lata. In 2013 she wrote the screenplay for a commercially successful film adaptation of Meu Passado Me Condena, in which actors Fábio Porchat and Miá Mello reprised their roles.[2] A sequel, also written by Bernardi, premiered in 2015,[3] and in the same year she wrote a novelization of both films.

In 2006 Bernardi published her first short story book, A Mulher que Não Prestava, which was followed by Tô com Vontade de uma Coisa que Eu Não Sei o que É in 2008. In the same year she also wrote A Menina da Árvore, geared towards preteen girls. In 2010 she wrote her first novel for young adults, A Menina que Pensava Demais. In an interview to Trip magazine dating from 2011, she stated that she was working on an independent, crowdfunded collaborative book entitled A Vaca, which was eventually released in the following year, with illustrations by Nando Rodriguez.[4] In 2016 she published the crônica compilation Depois a Louca Sou Eu.[5]

Bernardi has also written for magazines such as Viagem e Turismo, Trip and VIP, and since 2013 has a weekly column published every Friday in the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo.[6] On June 28, 2018, she published a compilation of some of her best crônicas written for the Folha de S.Paulo, entitled Homem-Objeto e Outras Coisas Sobre Ser Mulher.[7]

On March 8, 2017, Bernardi won the Diploma Bertha Lutz prize, awarded by the Brazilian Federal Senate.[8]
