MY INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR, TERESA SLACK

by Molly Noble Bull 



Today I’m excited to talk with Teresa Slack who released a novel last week, Runaway Heart, 


along with, Heart Burn, the first installment of a short story collection.  


 

Congratulations, Teresa. How are you dealing with your new publishing status? 

Teresa: 
I’m still floating, Molly. Two books in one week. Now I know how Karen Kingsbury feels. Well, almost. By the way, what do you know about shrimp farming in Ohio?.

Molly: 
Shrimp farming in Ohio? I know nothing about shrimp farming. 

Teresa: 
You might if you read Runaway Heart.  

Molly: 
Really? What made you include such a strange topic in RUNAWAY HEART?

Teresa:
I wanted Kyla to find more than a few changes when she came home to the Ohio farm where she spent her favorite summers as a child. With the current economic climate, farmers are coming up with new ways to supplement their farming income. Prawns were an interesting and unique aspect to add to the book that even most Ohioans don’t know about.

Molly: 
What can we expect next from Teresa Slack? 

Teresa: 
A lot, really. I’m working on several short stories for different collections. One is a historical western for SHOOT ‘EM UP WESTERNS. Another is the next installment for TRUE STORIES CELEBRATING LOVE & FAMILY. I’m also polishing a novel LEGACY OF FAITH, which takes place during the Great Blizzard of ’78. With all the snow blanketing the country every other week, I’m getting a lot of inspiration. 

Molly: 
Sounds interesting. What do you like to do when you’re not writing? 

Teresa: 
Reading, crocheting, and traveling the globe. Sadly, I have neither enough free time nor disposable cash to entertain these passions. Instead, I read when I can, spoil my three grandkids whenever possible and spend as much free time as possible with my wonderful & always supportive husband. I am also wildly passionate about animal rescue. Here’s my plug for that: When ready to add a new pet to your family, please consider adoption instead of paying for a pedigree. You can save a life.

Molly: 
I love animals, too. But I love unborn children even more. Maybe I will write an article about that sometime soon. But back to you, it sounds like things are moving pretty quickly in your writing career. Where can readers find more about you and how can they keep up with what’s new in your writing? 

Teresa: 
Lots of ways. I love hearing from readers. They can email me anytime at teresa@teresaslack.com. I answer every letter as soon as I can. They can check out my website www.teresaslack.com, or visit me on FaceBook. All my books, whether digital or trade paperbacks, are available on Amazon.com as well as most other online venues.

Molly: 
That’s very generous of you. How about doing something similar for our readers at Writer’s Rest? 

Teresa:
