Taressa loved fairy tales, fables, and imaginary worlds for as long as she can remember. She began imagining and writing her own in grade school and is compelled to continue. To support her compulsions, she has spent her working world life managing businesses of various types and is now self-employed in the hospitality industry in Hawaii.
Currently she lives and writes in Pele's rainforest with her husband, two dogs, one feral chicken, and an imaginary cat. She writes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and blogs about life. Some of her current works can be found in the publications Bouncin' and Behavin' Blogs, The Power of Poetry, Daily Cuppa, The Lark, Middle Pause, and Midform.
