Being an author has always been Therese’s dream. But it was only when the corporate world loomed during her final year at university that she realised how soon she wanted that dream to become a reality. So she got serious about her writing, entered the Harlequin So You Think You Can Write competition and got the attention of an editor. Now she writes books she wants to see in the world featuring people who look like her for a living. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with her husband and dogs in Cape Town, South Africa. You can find her on Twitter and Facebook , or catch up with her on her weekly writing blog. You can also learn more about her in the following interviews: Tygerburger , CapeTalk, TimesLive and Mills & Book SA.
