Sign up for free at https://www.getostrich.com/download About Antonia Gavrihel: Born to an entertainment family — her father a comedian and actor, her mother a big band singer — Antonia was placed in front of a camera at an early age. She loved acting yet dreamed of being a writer. Words, along with the visuals and stories they form, became her passion. Back to One was created when she was raising a young son, building a career, and managing the everyday hurdles of life. After settling her son to sleep after work, she would write into the late hours of the night--- for an entire year. Then began the twenty-five-year search for a publishing house to bring the novel to readers everywhere. The first summer of Covid-19 provided that serendipitous event. Away from writing and occasionally acting, she is a law professor and an enrolled agent/master tax advisor. Her second novel in the Back to One series continuing Cate and Kyle’s adventures will be released next October 2022.
