Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado, where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her master’s degree in nonprofit management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker’s box full of short-stories and novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula.

I really don't know as I never plan ahead. At the end of each book, I wait to see if a new character -- and completely original new story -- emerge. If so, then I go forward. If that doesn't happen some day, then I will end the series' rather than force formulaic books... LOL I do know that as of right now, there are new books coming in each (being written). :-) Hope that helps just a little. :-) :-) :-) (less)

Hi there,
Yes, this book will be on audible and iTunes. :-)
I've been posting regular updates on my social media pages (mostly facebook), but as of today -- Eric Dove (the narrator) is waiting for a replacement amplifier...his broke! He was going to record it last week, but now he'll be a week behind. And of course, it has to go through a read through, edits, and Audible's QA department before it's all approved -- so we're probably looking at mid-September. One thing to keep in mind, I send a direct, personal email notice to everyone on my mailing list as soon as each new audio books comes out. If you're interested, the mailing list form is here: https://www.tessadawn.com/join-the-ma... Have a nice week! (less)

“I don't know that I understand the
human concept of jealousy. I'm not afraid of any other male taking you from me because no man who ever tried such a thing would live. But yes I hold what is mine close to me.”
Tessa Dawn, Blood Destiny

“I'll tell you what: How about no more suicide attempts; no more walking off with strangers; no more trying to fight vampires with silly, human weapons--silver bullets only work on werewolves, Jocelyn--and no more holding Nachari's hand. And we'll be just fine.”
Tessa Dawn, Blood Destiny

“He has hazel eyes " Nachari remarked in astonishment.
He looked over at Jocelyn with approval.
"Yeah well " Marquis grumbled "we can toughen him up make up for that one little...feminine mishap."
Nachari feigned insult. "My eyes are green as well Marquis."
Marquis shrugged. "Yeah...and you became a wizard.”
Tessa Dawn, Blood Destiny

It's Me - Yvette Thanks for accepting my friend request, Tessa. I have to say, "I'm totally hooked." I just read all 3 of your books back-to-back. Oh, I loved each one more than the previous book. I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for the next book.
