Teresa Garcia (once Teresa Huddleston-Garcia) is a 30-something mother of two children with special needs, raising them "alone" in the small mountain town of McCloud, CA. Just because she is on her own though, does not mean that she is "alone." Many thanks are due to the McCloud Community Resource Center, to her brother and his family, and her mother, for all their help. She is also known as Teresa Amehana Garcia and AmehanaRainStarDrago.

She is in the process of converting all books from Teresa Huddleston-Garcia to Teresa Garcia (her maiden name) as she no longer wishes to have her ex's name on all her work. She appreciates patience as she gets the problems fixed with rereleases of older books to match her name resumption.

It takes several times of going over a draft to get it ready. Also, keep writing and keep submitting. Just because one story doesn't fit one editor or publisher does not mean it won't fit in elsewhere. Keep generating material and eventually you will find something that clicks. Then you'll also have a backpile of material for that day we all hope for... when someone wants a "complete works" compiled.(less)

This is responsible for a couple of the creatures in the second book of Selkies' Skins and Kirsty's trials, the black swallower and the lantern fish. I also try to keep a notebook in my purse so that when my daughter is in her gym class (she's charter schooled) I can write more story before I get her to the rest of her classes and can get back to my "office" (aka the laptop).(less)
