Meet The Author

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.

The award-winning novel, 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 after a twenty-five-year search for a publishing house to bring the novel to readers everywhere came a serendipitous event.  

Back to One: Take 2 Ambient Light came into being as Antonia updated Back to One’s setting from 1995 to 2005. Ambient Light reveals a deepening of Cate and Kyle’s friendship, flourishing careers and all the challenges associated with maintaining a normal life among the extraordinary. Inspired by the engaging characters, Antonia was motivated to continue their journey after turning the final page of the first novel. 

Her third novel in the Back to One series, Cinéma Vérité, uncovers the darker side of celebrity.
