From the author's website
Tessa Dare is a part-time librarian1, full-time mommy2 and swing-shift writer3 living in Southern California. Tessa lived a rather nomadic childhood in the Midwest. As a girl, she discovered that no matter how many times she moved, two kinds of friends traveled with her: the friends in books, and the friends in her head. She still converses with both sets daily.
Tessa writes fresh and flirty historical romance, a blog, and the stray magazine article. To the chagrin of her family, Tessa does not write grocery lists, Christmas cards, or timely checks to utility companies4. She shares a tiny bungalow with her husband, their two children, a dog, and many dust bunnies.5 Tessa enjoys a good book, a good laugh, a good long walk in the woods, a good movie, a good meal, a glass of good wine, and the company of good people.
Tessa is represented by Helen Breitwieser of Cornerstone Literary Agency.
Tessa did not expect to enjoy writing about herself in third person, but what do you know? Tessa does.6
Oh, and Tessa would love to hear from you!
1 Currently, more like part-part-part-time.
2 However, the darelings are now in school or preschool.
3 And I do a lot of my writing during their school.
4 I actually did send a few cards last year. Fell off the wagon again.
5 Some lovely ladies come to corral them every other week.
6 Why so many footnotes? Because I'm Tessa is oddly superstitious lazy about changing this, the very first bio she ever wrote.
