Tess lives on the East Coast of Australia with her husband, and they both enjoy exploring their local area. Walking, swimming, lolling about in the sun, socializing with friends… it’s a good life!

There’s something else that Tess loves to do (now this won’t surprise you at all!) and that is to read stories about people who have loved and lost, and loved again… or people who fight against the odds to find the love of a lifetime!

Reading stories like this led Tess to wanting to write her own stories about the the path to love and happiness. (Yes, she’s a sucker for happy endings!) She is confident that the Hope Valley Romance series is just the beginning.

After all, there are so many wonderful stories to tell!
