Teresa grew up in Oklahoma and developed a love for reading and writing at an early age. She currently resides in Virginia and is the mother of two wonderful boys. Her inspiration comes from her family. She would like to give a special thanks to her Mom, Dad, her twin Chumeica, her grandmother for believing in her even when others didn’t, Tich for encouraging her to take that first step in publishing, and especially her two boys.Tich is an Oklahoma resident and the mother of five. Her passion for reading started at an early age when her Aunt Vicky gave her the novel Heidi for Christmas. Shedidn’t start writing until middle school, after being inspired by her best friend’s short stories. “Genny’s stories weren’t just great but they inspired me to put my pen andpaper to good use.” Tich never thought of publishing her works until working with Teresa on the Royal Blood series.
