After graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Musical Theatre, Gavriel Savit moved to New York to launch his performing career with shows at places like the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, Goodspeed Musicals in Connecticut, City Centerâ€™s Encores! series, and the Westside Theatre, Off-Broadway.
Like many actors, Gavriel also had some unstructured time, which he spent reading: Neil Gaimanâ€™s Sandman series, Yann Martelâ€™s Life of Pi, Adam Levinâ€™s The Instructions, Lev Grossmanâ€™s The Magicians, Susanna Clarkeâ€™s Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and the stories of Jorge Luis Borges, amongst others.
He found it all terribly inspiring.
Gavriel had an idea and he had a computer, so he sat down and he started to write. His first novel, Anna and the Swallow Man is due out from Knopfâ€™s Books for Young Readers division in the Spring of 2016.
Gavriel continues to perform in the theatre, and heâ€™s got a few different writing projects heâ€™s working on, too.
