BPM: In your own words tell us about YOU.
I’m a caring, easy-going, reliable woman born and raised in San Francisco and now a comfortable settler in New Jersey.
I was inspired to write after being an avid reader for so long. I read my favorite author’s first book and I knew then that I wanted to create my own love story. It has always been a lifelong dream of mine. My goal is to have a large reader base where millions will enjoy my stories.
Of course, I dream of becoming a household name one day!
As I ventured into the writing world, I discovered I had a knack for writing with twists and connecting my characters together. I love writing; it gets the creative juices flowing. I get a thrill just being able to write about love, suspense and drama!

Renee still confused by her lover's disappearance, attends an event with her best friend, Sabrina. There they meet California native Bradsen Myers. A single, handsome, respected attorney and he's definitely interested in Renee. While Bradsen feels its love at first sight, she pushes him away.

How can she start to build a connection with him when her secret love has vanished without a trace? Was he injured? Was he murdered? Where was he?
BPM: Give us some insight into your main characters in The Loose End, your first book. What makes each one so special?
Tesa: Renee Lawson is a young, vibrant beautiful woman that fell in love with a married man. Kayron Hawkins is the so-called happily married man in a relationship with Renee. Sabrina Brown is Renee's childhood best friend and roommate and she's very opinionated. Bradsen Myers is a prominent attorney and is attracted to Renee. I enjoy developing new characters and giving them a voice because each one is uniquely written.
BPM: What inspired you to sit down and actually start writing The Loose End?
Tesa: I started writing ten years ago. The experience was great because I knew it was a big accomplishment. The problem was, I tried to go the traditional publisher route and after the many rejections I gave up on the manuscript. It wasn't until years later when my husband found it and liked what I wrote. That's when the desire for writing returned and I decided to research self-publishing.
BPM: What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
Tesa: For me, the easiest part about writing is when you have a muse that you can build or base a character on. My childhood best friend of 30+ years is inspiration to Sabrina's character in my book. She happens to have those same character traits of always being there and guiding me that it just makes the story come together in a nice even flow.
BPM: Where do your book ideas come from? Are your books plot-driven or character-driven? Why?
Tesa: My ideas are character driven. I keep a notebook with me on the go. I start a story in there before scanning it into the computer. I still have a thing for the old fashioned scratch and scribble... I write everything down on paper.
BPM: How does your books relate to your present situation or journey?
Tesa: I write fiction for entertainment purposes. I want readers to be able to escape into my world.
BPM: Did you learn anything personal from writing your 4-book series?
Tesa: I love writing; it gets the creative juices flowing. I love unknowingly connecting characters together. It's a small world and I prove that in my writing style. I get the thrill of just being able to write about love, twists, and a little suspense.
BPM: Can you share some stories about people you met while researching for the books?
Tesa: Some of the places/establishments in my book are places that people can actually visit. I would recommend Sonoma Valley, where you can tour the Korbel winery.
BPM: What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?
Tesa: My goal was to write a love story with romance, suspense and unexpected twists. I am so pleased with the way the story turned out that it became a series.
