Theresa Jenner Garrido is a graduate of the University of Washington and a former middle school English teacher. She's had a variety of occupations including medical assistant, bank clerk, bookseller, and drama teacher.
Her interests include painting, hiking, swimming, amassing oddities from diverse locales, reading, and of course writing.
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest instilled in her the love of nature and the mysterious, and she says the briny water of Puget Sound will always be in her blood.
One of her favorite spots in the U. S. is a sleepy beach town nestled between dunes and marshes in the South Carolina Low Country, just south of Charleston. Live oak trees, hanging moss, timeless ocean tides, and Gullah folklore have woven a spell that compels her to return as often as time permits.
