1 Give me a brief Bio of you.

Teya’s most recent accomplishment started in the summer of 2015, with the publication of Stripes. Continued on to Within Qwestar, Treasures of Truth, and her dad’s dream come true with publishing his books. He passed untimely in 2006, and will always be and continue to be her inspiration. She is the 2016 local A.N.W.A. chapter (Snake River Writers) president, won National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWritMo) by writing a 50,000 word book in twelve days, and loves Storymakers.

Teya has been writing for as long as she can remember. Started with poetry at a young age while she lived on a street she affectionately named Hill Street Blues, and continued when her family moved to Menan.

She loves sitting in her soft chair next to the fireplace and watching out a big living room window. It gives her plenty of creative juice for stories.

She met the love of her life in the loft of a barn. Yep, that set up some teasing from her father. They have been happily married since 2003, with four children, but refuses to comment on the trolls in the closets and under the beds

Teresa, what makes you passionate about writing?

Characters make me passionate about writing. I’m an emotional person and pretty reactive, even though I’m working to curb that. I love to people watch, but not to judge hair or clothes but to watch the emotional responses that people around me have to their circumstances. People fascinate me. That’s why I read and why I write. Discovering how the characters are going to respond to their circumstances develops who they are; the emotional process that unfolds drives me to tell the story.


Nice. Do you have a writing routine?

Yes and no. My routine exists, but it changes according to what I am working on.  It’s not a daily routine as much as a cyclical one. I may be in production mode on a certain book, essay or article. At those times I focus on that project full-time. But that project will also go through stages that are (more…)
