Teresa Stanisha

Three Corners of a House
How many times had she seen him down by the lake? Since she turned five years old in the small town of Nova Mesto, Yugoslavia, she’d seen Will waiting for her everyday down by the lake. He wore a smile each time he saw her.


Order today!






Will had been a part of her life since the year 1920. Lizbeth smiled at the thought. She met him that year. As she reminisced, a tear formed in her eyes. She stared out the window of her home in Pittsburgh, PA. She lived a different life now in the states. Certainly her home bore more elegance than the house on the hill.

Lizbeth inhaled the air, catching the scent of roses and fresh green grass. In her haste, she nearly tripped and fell. Her sandaled feet made the dust appear behind her as she raced down the dirt path after her sister. She ran among the fields of flowers, desperate to complete her chores. Her father took a strap to her and her sister if they stayed too long by the lake. She loved to be around the pristine stillness of the water surrounded by the lilies and the outlines of the mountains in the distance though.

Lizbeth and her sister, Mary, told stories to each other. With great imaginations, they created fairy tales where a prince gallantly saved a princess from the bad guys.

As they neared the water's edge, they were careful not to dirty their clothing. Every day, except on Sundays when they went to the convent for Mass, they changed into different outfits at certain times. They changed clothes like clockwork-once in the morning for school and again when they came home. Sometimes they wore their play clothes, but not often. With so many chores to perform, playtime was a reward. Since clothes were scarce, they had to keep even their work clothes as clean as possible. Lizbeth brushed the dust from her frayed blue shirt. Dirtying the clothes would just make for more work. She would end up scrubbing them in the wash bin and she knew it.

That was long ago. Before things got so out of hand and before the war between their families started to brew. A tear fell from her eye and she brushed it away. Staring out the window she remembered more...


Reviews for Teresa Stanisha


"Orchid's Beach: Sarah Letesny had everything she could want, a great job, a man who loved her and the perfect house. It seemed everything was perfect for her until that day she got home and her world fell apart... Collin, her fiance, had vanished from sight and took everything that was his with him. For weeks she walked on the beach near her home thinking and wondering what had gone so wrong that Collin left. When she finally went back to work her boss Ron Hitel had decided a change of scenery would be best for her and offered her a position in South Carolina. It was that same day that her car exploded in the parking garage at work. Once in South Carolina she began getting strange items that made her tend to believe that Collin was somewhere near but was it him? Why did Collin leave so unexpectedly and why did he not try to contact Sarah all this time? What is Ron Hitel's part in this story? This story has romance of course but the mystery and plots that seem to shift the reader's attention from one character to the next are done very well and I must admit I was baffled in a few places as to who was the real villain. I recommend Orchid's Beach and would love to see it made into a movie." - 5 hearts, Louise Riveiro- Mitchell, The Romance Studio

"ORCHID’S BEACH is an exciting read. The action and romance are non-stop! I found myself living Sarah’s ordeals with her and feeling her pain. Terésa (Tracey) Louise Stanisha has a hit novel in this reader’s opinion." - Pam Bless, The Round Table Reviews

"A TIME FOR PINK ROSES-ALL MY LIFE is a wonderful love story that is touching and special to anyone who has ever had such a love in their lives. To have that true love that goes far beyond what one can see and feel and last until time is no more. And to know that even after this you'll still be together again. Ms. Stanisha has touched my heart and soul with this story and will do it to all who read it." - 5 Hearts, Louise Riveiro-Mitchell, The Romance Studio

An Interview with Teresa Stanisha
By Holly Hewson Marketing Director for The Romance Studio


HH: Teresa, welcome back to TRS. Please tell us about your featured work, Three Corners of a House.

TS: Hello Holly, it is so nice to interview with you again and right at the holidays when everyone is ready to celebrate. Happy holidays to you and everyone at the Romance Studio and the readers and fans. It is always a pleasure to visit with you all and tell you my latest news.

Thank you for having me and asking about my latest work, Three Corners of a House. It is included in an anthology along with another story, Lovers, Murder and Movies and five poems of mine, too.

The story Three Corners of a House, is about two people from Slovenia that come to America legally. Their tale is a love story, filled wih courage and the struggles that were overcome in order for them to be together. Here is a little exerpt from the story.

Three Corners of a House
How many times had she seen him down by the lake? Since she turned five years old in the small town of Nova Mesto, Yugoslavia, she’d seen Will waiting for her every day down by the lake. He wore a smile each time he saw her. Will had been a part of her life since the year 1920. Lizbeth smiled at the thought. She met him in that year. As she reminisced, a tear formed in her eye. She stared out the window of her home in Pittsburgh, PA. She lived a different life now in the states.

HH: Where did you get the idea for this amazing story?

TS: My grandparents came from Slovenia legally and they married and made a wonderful life with each other. They were an inspiration for my story of their great love and courage, after all, they couldn't speak the language when they came, but they learned it. They were truly wonderful people, filled with love for others and they are remembered so fondly. They will always be missed and loved.

HH: It’s being featured in the sensational collection, Literally Speaking. How did you come to be part of the anthology?

TS: This is a great anthology with contributions from other writers. I answered a call to be in it and it will prove to be an excellent book.

Here is the website to find out more about it. http://www.fountainpennpublishing.squarespace.com/journal/

HH: What can you tell us about your other recent release, Oceans and Mountains?

TS: Oceans and Mountains is a great suspense tale, which is set in beautfiul Newport, Rhode Island. Join my characters as they spin their tale along the beautiful landscape of Newport.

Oceans and Mountains
Bob just can't stop when it comes to Maureen. He wants what he wants and while vacationing in Newport, Rhode Island he shows just how much. Bill, a business colleague, tells them of the loss of their jobs and sets in motion a dangerous ploy to escape from their ex company's CEO's.

There is danger at every corner. Their lives are untangled from many years before, bringing forth old secrets of illicit love affairs and destroying years of trusted friendships. As a level four hurricane bears down on Newport, there is much more trouble than they ever bargained for.

It's a tumuluous battle of changed identities and fiery anger. Their struggle is one of survival. As they flee from many enemies, including mother nature's fiery wrath, they head from the oceans to the mountains for safety. Are they friends or foes or could they even begin to know?

HH: What are you working on now?

TS: I have many projects going on all the time. One story I would like to get published is Silver Toolkits Never Lie for the next project. This is another suspense novel that has many great spins in it.

HH: How do you balance being a lady of so many talents?

TS: Balance? Well, do any of us balance it all? You stay up late at night and get it all done. Somehow it all gets finished. Then when you get to play you play hard and have a lot of fun. I have many different areas of interest so it is never boring. Sometimes it gets stressful, but never boring.

HH: Of all of your work, what are you most proud of?

TS: I am proud that I continue to write and hopefully that will continue for a long time. Writing is something that I enjoy doing, so I want it to be a part of my life. My works make me proud and I am thankful for all of them. I wouldn't say any certain one makes me more proud than the others.

HH: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

TS: If I have enough spare time I like to drive up to Lake Erie and enjoy the beach. That is the nearest thing to the ocean for Pittsburghers, like me. Lake Erie is just like the ocean because the sand is nice and you can't see the land across the water because it is so far away. It is awesome and Lake Erie has some of the best sunsets you could ever see.

I love to travel whenever I get the chance to. If there is not much spare time, I like to go dancing, especially ballroom dancing. I also like to go out to eat, see Broadway shows, visit new places, listen to good bands. Enjoy doing my crafts and being creative, doing my artwork, writing, visting with my family and friends and having great parties. So many other things, but I don't think I could list them all for this interview.

HH: How will you spend the holidays this year?

TS: This year I will be in Pittsburgh and celebrate the holidays with my family. We always have plenty of good food, great people and lots of laughter and fun. I just can't wait, thinking of the holiday, I love Christmas!!! Then, after the holiday for the New Year, my Connecticut family members will be here for a visit and that always proves to be a wonderful time. They are so very dear to me and I miss them because they are so far away. They will be staying a whole week and that will be very nice. Going to party it up big on New Year's Eve and ring in the New Years in a good way this year.

HH: What’s the best way for readers to keep up with all your latest news?

TS: Thank you as always, Holly, for this interview. It has been a pleasure. Hope that you and everyone out there have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Good luck to everyone!
