Theresa Crater grew up next to an old Gothic mansion in North Carolina. All the kids in the neighborhood were sure the brain surgeon who lived there was making a Frankenstein-monster in the basement. That turned out not to be the case, but making up stories got to be a habit.
Theresa has published two paranormal mysteries in the Power Places series, Under the Stone Paw, an Egyptian adventure, and Beneath the Hallowed Hill, set in Avalon. She’s also published several short stories, most recently “The Judgment of Osiris” in Tales in Firelight and Shadow and “White Moon” in Riding the Moon.
Currently, she teaches creative writing and literature at MSU-Denver. Her first serious job was teaching meditation. Theresa’s fiction blends lost civilizations, ancient temples and secret societies with myth, metaphysics and just plain good adventure. Her husband, Stephen Mehler, is an independent Egyptologist who has three books out and leads tours to Egypt.
Theresa lives with Stephen, their two cats, in Boulder, Colorado, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and all its wildlife.
