Teresa is an illustrator who morphed into an author of novels full of fantasy, art, mystery and magic for age 9 and over. Her first novel about an enchanted Renaissance painting in an infamous Scottish castle, THE BLACKHOPE ENIGMA (Templar UK, 2010; Candlewick Press USA, 2011), was short-listed for many book awards in the UK and was a Junior Library Guild Selection in the USA. The sequel, THE CRIMSON SHARD (Templar UK, 2011), a time travel fantasy set in 18th century London, received excellent reviews in the UK and was published by Candlewick in the USA in 2012. It is also a Junior Library Guild Selection. The final novel in the trilogy, THE SHADOW LANTERN, was published by Templar in the UK in May, 2013 and the US edition will be published by Candlewick on July 8, 2014.
Teresa's dream is to make exciting short trailers about the three novels. In honour of its US publication in 2012, she presented THE CRIMSON SHARD book trailer first, with THE SHADOW LANTERN next in 2013. She is grateful for the help of good friends who helped her with filming, sound recording and editing and to _ghost whose music became the soundtrack. She would like to give special thanks to the-parish.com who designed all three book covers.
