Therese Fowler is represented by Pump Up Your Book Promotion, an innovative public relations agency specializing in online book promotion.
Therese Fowler has believed in the magic of a good story since she learned to read at the age of four. At age 30, as a newly single parent, she put herself into college, earning a degree in sociology (and finding her real Mr. Right) before deciding to scratch her longtime fiction-writing itch. That led to an MFA in creative writing, and the composition of stories that explore the nature of our families, our culture, our mistakes, and our desires. The author of two novels, with a third scheduled for 2010, Therese lives in Wake Forest, North Carolina, with her supportive husband and sons, and two largely indifferent cats.

Thank you for this interview, Therese. Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?
Thank you for having me here!
I'm a novelist by trade, but I'm also mom to two teenagers and stepmom to two more - all boys who could hardly be less alike than they are. I love the outdoors (fittingly, my birthday is Earth Day) and am most content either puttering in the yard or exploring someplace during my travels. As for writing, I've been at it in one form or another for most of my life, but have only been writing purposefully for a little over eight years now.
Do you write full-time?
At what point in your life did you make up your mind you were going to become a published author?
