Author: Teresa Edmond

Teresa Edmond has been writing poetry since nine years old, and writing newspaper articles since 16. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in communications from Fairleigh Dickinson University, where she was an editor, writer and photographer for the campus newspaper. She also penned a college thesis that explored the impact of print journalism scandals on the media’s reputation. Teresa was a newspaper freelancer and an editorial assistant for publishing houses and newspapers before becoming a staff writer for a North Jersey newspaper, The Suburban Trends. For her work there, she won Second Place in the Interpretive Writing Category in the New Jersey Press Association 2009 Better Newspaper Contest. In 2006, Teresa published her debut book of poetry “How Fate's Confusion Connects" with Wheatmark Inc. She continues to publish poetry and appear at local poetry venues. In January 2012, Teresa launched her publishing imprint Heathermoors Books, through which she’ll release her own novels, starting with Warding Off Reality in 2012. When Teresa wants to wind down from writing, she reads (a lot!), goofs around with her 10-year-old daughter and executes mad roundhouse kicks in tae kwon do class.

Migration to New Website

Starting early this month, I am migrating all of my followers from this one to my new site,, which is now hosted on a self-hosted platform that would allow me opportunities in adding more features and growing my readership.

On the new site, I will have more in-depth content about local literary events, authors, book reviews, and writing tips and advice. Over there, check out this post about me being one of three featured authors and storytellers at a Feb. 25 reading event. Here’s another one about my latest Kindle ebook “An Estella Exclusive”, which I published last week.

And did you know I’m releasing a third Kindle ebook later this month?:-) Read an excerpt from my upcoming tome here

I appreciate the readers and authors who follow my blog and with whom I interact through on-site comments, social media and email. I look forward to learning more about what you’re reading, writing and simply creating. It’s fun to write a blog, but it’s even more fun to share it with people who have similar interests and open minds alike.

See you on my new site!
