Who is Theresa?








Author Theresa M. Jarvela resides in Brainerd, Minnesota. Theresa was a young mother when the idea to write a novel first struck her. It became one of her lifetime goals. Years later, her five children grown, she took an advanced creative writing class and joined Brainerd Writers Alliance. The door to the writing world opened.

An avid reader, Theresa loves “cozy” novels so it comes as no surprise that she is the author of the “cozy” mystery series – Tales of a Tenacious Housesitter. Three novels have been published in the series – Home Sweet Murder, Home for the Murder and Bring Home the Murder. Publisher – North Star Press of St. Cloud, Inc.

Besides a novelist, Theresa is a freelance writer and has been published in several regional magazines. Her article, Facebook – Friend or Foe, placed in the 79th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition.

When Theresa is not busy writing, you might find her scooting around town during the warmer months in her Mazda Miata with the top down. In the colder months you can bet she’ll be sitting at the end of her couch with a good mystery and a cup of hot tea.

Theresa’s philosophy – “Life is full of adventures – live them, read them or write them! You’re never too old to enjoy them.”
