Teresa Edgerton is the author of eleven novels, as well as short fiction, reviews, interviews, and articles on writing.
She believes she has been telling stories since she first learned to talk. Sixty years later, she is still inventing them.
Largely unaware, when she started writing seriously, of the realities of publishing, it took her almost ten years to finish, sell, and see her first novel published. Ignorance may not be bliss, she says, but it can be a great encouragement in situations where someone wiser and better-informed might have walked away. That first novel, Child of Saturn, was a finalist for the Compton-Crook award.
Having (temporarily) slaked her thirst for epic fantasy by writing one trilogy, she went on to write the dark/alchemical fairy tale, Goblin Moon. It enjoyed a modest success at the time, and gained an enthusiastic following over the next two decades.
She currently lives with her husband, three adult children, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law-elect, two grandsons, assorted pets, and more books than you might think would fit in the remaining space.
Teresa has also written two books under the pseudonym Madeline Howard. You can find those books on amazon, too. Look for "The Hidden Stars" and "A Dark Sacrifice."
