Terese grew up in the Hunter Valley, NSW, and has loved mysteries ever since she was a child when she wrote her first novel on the back of a pile of dot-matrix paper her father gave her. The Mystery of the Missing Piecrust was never completed, however, she resumed her passion for writing several years ago. Blood Will Tell is her first completed manuscript.

Terese currently works in a civilian role with the Police Service, which proved to be a tremendous resource while researching this novel. She lives on the Redcliffe Peninsula, QLD, with her husband, Michael.
