Teresa Balin


My methodology for writing is for the events to play out like a movie in the readers mind. I want them to feel, taste, and smell the atmosphere. That is always my priority when writing.

I will tend to write short stories while I am working on a novel. Some ideas are wild but I have so much fun writing them - plus it keeps my mind active - never a bad thing, wouldn't you agree?

I reside in sunny and beautiful Naples, FL.
