Teresa Trent writes hilarious cozy mysteries that take place in the small town of Pecan Bayou, Texas. She was first inspired to create Pecan Bayou after visiting the Texas Hill Country to view the millions of springtime flowers alongside the roads and highways. The town of Pecan Bayou does not exist in Texas, but there is a body of water in the state with the name. Pecan Bayou does exist in Teresa's imagination and heart.
Teresa's newest release, Till Dirt Do Us Part is now available on Kindle. This is the long awaited seventh book in the Pecan Bayou Series.

Doors would lock, stereos would turn off, and even the vacuum would turn on and off. We lived on the middle floor with one bathroom. That door would lock forcing us to use the bathroom in the basement where the most activity was reported. There had to be a story behind that house(less)

Many times writer's block for me means that I have not sufficiently created the structure needed to continue my story.

What happens next? Oh you know, they go there and do that thing...huh?

I step back to my outline and fill in the details and make sure that I haven't gone away from my original story. If I have strayed, I explore why I felt the need to do so. It usually has to do with something that wasn't working in the original story-so I try to fix it. It's kind of like when your car is making a funny sound and you have to get under the hood to figure out what's going on with it.(less)
