Teria Robens comes to fiction-writing as a second career. Although she had written stories since childhood, in 30 years, she published only in her profession. Several years ago, TR locked herself in a hotel room to study for a re-certification exam. After a week, focusing on professional information, she couldn’t hear her fictional characters. Panic came with a powerful realization: TR wanted to be a successful fiction writer more than she’d wanted anything else in her life except having kids.
TR joined the Romance Writers of America and made lifelong friends in the Windy City Chapter. Her started going to writers’ conferences and her work earned competitive admission into several university master classes in creative writing. She spent years inside her characters’ heads before publishing What the Mirror Sees. This is the first book in TR’s Diva series about heroines who’ve been on the planet long enough to develop some wisdom along with their insecurities. Like you, these grown women struggle to put themselves higher up on the “To Do” list when they decide that it’s not too late to reach for their dreams.
TR is a girly girl who earned a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo. She and her husband raised two amazing young adults and live in the Chicago area with a cat who loves water and plays “fetch.” Living her dreams in retirement, in addition to writing, TR travels to destination spas and takes voice lessons. She’s also improving her skating skills and learning to ride horses and motorcycles.
