Gabriella Tonin was born in Nave, in Brescia province, in July 1963. She works at the fiscal office of a major trade association in Brescia.
She has always been driven by curiosity to find answers in reading. In 2005 she attends her first creative writing course organized by the City of Nave. The teacher, Mirella Floris, is able to inspire an immediate love for writing. In March 2006, along with other classmates, she publishes a small collection titled: “Prove d’anima” (Soul tests). In the subsequent years, new courses take place, some of which organized by Public Institutions, other spontaneous, in Mirella’s house. It 's just there, in 2008, that the publication of her first book is planned, released by Besa, titled Pretesti Sensibili (Sensitive pretexts), a collection of short stories and poems.
