Ten Years Later is the inspirational story of a the not-so-typical heroine, Carla D’Agostino, who is stuck in a seemingly dead-end job, single, and still living with her overbearing Italian-American parents. She is thrown for a loop when she realizes her ten-year high school reunion is fast approaching. True love, a career as a sports radio talk show host, the perfect body – every dream remains frustratingly out of reach no matter how Carla strives and schemes. Out of reach, that is, until unexpected events lead her right back to where she started, and Carla discovers that all she ever wanted was right in front of her the whole time.
Ten Years Later is a witty, unpredictable tale of one ordinary young woman’s race for the top as she throws caution to the wind and decides to go for her dreams.
Ten Years Later will be everywhere October 4th; make sure to pre-order your paperback and Kindle copy today on Amazon!
