Download Biography

Joann Bradvica—a wife, a mother of three adult children, and business owner—is passionately Catholic and has been active in Church ministry for many years.

To create Donuts After Mass, a children’s book for Ascension, Joann (pictured left) teamed up with her two adult daughters, Daniela and Rafaela (pictured right and center, respectively). Both young women grew in love for their Catholic faith through fourteen years of Catholic schooling and by living in Catholic residences while in college. 

Rafaela, the illustrator of Donuts After Mass, helped to manage the Confirmation program at her parish for four years. Daniela, who is a co-author of the book’s content together with her mother, currently teaches fourth-grade religious education. Both Rafaela and Daniela have been active in music ministry since the second grade. 

Joann lives in California, while Rafaela and Daniela are currently living and working on the East Coast.
