Welcome to the OFFICIAL 'About The Author' page of:
Thérésa Hedges is an award-winning novelist and playwright. Tending towards the eclectic, she has a particular fondness for writing science fiction, horror, and humour. Her first novel, “Our Little Miracle” was a cautionary tale about the role genetics plays in our everyday lives and how science can be manipulated to meet many ends.
She has since published three more books: “Dominic”, a Wilde-inspired tale of a young Welsh medical student who unwittingly becomes a vampire in Victorian times, “The Diary Of An Everyday Vampire”, a witty view of life from the viewpoint of someone who definitely is not undead, and “Trash”, a futuristic thriller also set in her native Wales.
Her latest book sees her stepping outside the sci-fi/horror genre with a humourous and affectionate homage to Pride &Prejudice, entitled “First Impressions”. She has also returned to screenwriting and recently finished work on the film “Like Glass”.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Thérésa originally trained as a psychologist then (when the Ghostbusters thing didn’t work out) she went into teaching. All the while, she was writing, initially working on screenplays before moving on to be an award-winning playwright. In 2015 Thérésa returned to her first love of novel-writing and wrote the science-fiction thriller Our Little Miracle. 2016 saw the release of Diary Of An Everyday Vampire, & the story of a very different vampire – Dominic. The sci-fi thriller Trash followed in November 2017. Her style is very visual, poetic, and has been described as ‘like Classic Gothic fiction of the best kind.’
Thérésa describes herself as being ‘a bit hyperactive and outdoorsy’ and jokes that if/when anyone makes a film of Dominic, she’d like to play Aunt Melissa, please..!
No glitter, no fuss, just a new-fangled view on life…
Did you know vampires are real? Of course you did. Well, you always suspected it. And they're not actually undead, just largely unenthusiastic about the modern world.
