by Terri Stober.
My book entitled A Road to Barcelona, A Mother’s Account has been recently published. My e-book or paperback is listed on Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and other online retailers. Bank of Books in Ventura, also, has my book in paperback.
My book is a mother’s story of her two daughters leaving home at young ages to pursue gymnastics dreams to be Olympians. The loneliness and longing to be with her daughters during their journey and the long separations were not easy to describe. Maybe they didn’t make it to the Olympics, but there were decisions, successes, and experiences that I wanted to share.
A retired high school educator and Human Relations Specialist retirement has allowed me the time to hike, bike, volunteer at the Ventura Botanical Gardens and the San Buenaventura Mission, play bridge, travel, and now write my first book.
Terri and her husband raised their two daughters in Grass Valley in Northern California, where they found their passion for gymnastics. After the girls’ college graduations, Terri worked and lived internationally for five years in Egypt and Paris, France, then moved to Seattle where she lived for 11 years. She finally returned to her home state of California in 2013.
I will have my second book signing at Bank of Books, 748 E Main St. from 1-3 pm on June 24. I hope to see you there. www.gymnasticsamothersacctbystober.com .
