As you have probably gathered by now my name is Teresa Nordheim. I was born
and raised in Washington state. My supportive husband Andre, daughters Cindi,
Katerina, and I live in a beautiful Puyallup, Washington.
From the time I could pick up a pencil, I was drawing. It didn't matter if it

As time passed I wanted my drawings to come to life. So I started writing. I
fell in love with writing. I can remember sitting on the steps of my
grandparent's home with paper and pencil. I was working on my trillionth drawing
of a horse when my Grandpa approached me.
He said, "If you keep practicing, you will succeed." I took those words to
heart and followed my dream. Apart from my family, writing and illustrating
children's books is my greatest passion.
