Teressa Morris won an award in the sixth grade for her short story, “The Perils of the Periwinkle People”. She continued writing all through high school and into college where she majored in journalism and English. In 1987 she dropped out of school to live her dream of becoming a full-time wife and stay-at-home mom.
Teressa homeschooled her children for a total of 11 years, then went on to help her husband, a retired Air Force electronics technician, start a successful retail golf business.
After the golf shop failed in 2009, due to the downturn in the economy, Teressa turned the bookkeeping she had learned for the business into a part-time job. Her husband struggled to get hired in the new economic environment, and Teressa became the primary breadwinner for the family, along with an avid couponer and deal seeker. She has also learned the ins and outs of unemployment, Medi-Cal and various other California assistance programs.
With so much responsibility on her plate, Teressa started looking for a creative outlet. Her oldest child suggested she return to her passion for writing. She started blogging one day a week, first about things she had gleaned from Bible studies, then about her family’s struggles with bullying, depression and insomnia.
Teressa now blogs 3-5 days a week, about topics as varied as recipes, book and product reviews, and giveaways, as well as continuing to discuss subjects that are dear to her heart, such as bullying, transgender issues and charitable causes. She recently published a Kindle short story, Peace and Quiet: A Cautionary Tale.
If you read her blog, she would love it if you left a comment. Let her know if you like her eclectic style and what subjects you would like to read about next.
