Therese Ambrosi Smith wrote of young women choosing lives different from their mothers' as a UCLA Writers' Program student. Her personal tales of work and travel: climbing mountains, surveying logging roads, designing parks and playgrounds, tending bar and selling fish, were the subjects of her short fiction.
In 2006, she visited the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historic Park and was offered a remarkable collection of oral histories by Park Ranger Elizabeth Tucker. Since then, stories of real-life "Rosies" have informed her work. Wax is her first novel.
Therese has rescued a wreck of a vintage camper from a field near Peru, Indiana; it will be "home"for her upcoming "Tin Can Camper Book Tour". You can follow her progress polishing aluminum and learning to back into small spaces, by clicking on her website.
