Her most recent accomplishment started in the summer of 2015. Making her dad’s dream come true with publishing his works as well, as an emotional accomplishment. She is the 2016 local
A.N.W.A. chapter (Snake River Writers) president, won NaNoWriMo and loves StoryMakers.

Teya has been writing for as long as she can remember. At a young age she lived on a
street she affectionately named Hill Street Blues, which helped her creative writing. Her Family moved to Menan where she continued her love of writing. Her father would always be and will continue to be her inspiration, even after his
untimely death in 2006.

She loves sitting in her soft chair next to the fireplace and watching out a big living
room window. It gives her plenty of creative juice for stories.

She met the love of her life in the loft of a barn. Yep, that set up some teasing from her
father. They have been happily married since 2003. They have four children and all are loving and supportive of her writing.  Her oldest daughter is following in her footsteps as a writer adding her own illustrations. She refuses to comment on the trolls in the closets and under the beds. She is active in her church, has compassion for others, and a love for all life brings.

Q&A with the Author

3- What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? Stopping and moving. How do you defeat it? I have to set a timer and step away.
4 – What kind of music do you listen to while you write? I don’t it’s too much of a distraction for me. Unless I write poetry then it’s classical.

Can love be tested too far? Will hearts soften and hurts be
Or will too much loss be too devastating to find hope?
One thing is for sure, lives are about to change forever…



She stretched her furthest extension ever, her
personal best. She felt Jason’s hand strengthen at her waist, pushing her up to
his fullest lift as his right hand let go of her leg for a moment. Pure
perfection. Her heart calm and running rapid, at the same time feeling the
excitement of the crowd fill the air. Closing her eyes, she readied to be
tossed into the air and captured in a fish dive in Jason’s arms, but the moment
never came.
