I'm quite an early bird, so many times mornings are the best times form me to write and edit. This morning (Aug. 1), I woke up at a quarter to 7 (that is early for anyone on any Sunday, but I often wake up earlier than that on the weekends). I put on my iTunes music and worked. I can't write along to music with lyrics. I listened to the new age album "Upcounty Morning" by WIll Diehl, made some coffee and got to work. And the fact that my family was still asleep by that time meant I had the whole apartment to myself. Glad to say, I was able to edit a whole chapter before heading off to kickboxing class!

Teresa Edmond-Sargeant has been writing poetry since nine years old, and writing newspaper articles since 16. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in communications from Fairleigh Dickinson University, where she was an editor, writer and photographer for the campus newspaper. She also penned a college thesis that explored the impact of print journalism scandals on the media’s reputation. Teresa was a newspaper freelancer and an editorial assistant for publishing houses and newspapers before becoming a staff writer for a North Jersey newspaper, The Suburban Trends. For her work there, she won Second Place in the Interpretive Writing Category in the New Jersey Press Association 2009 Better Newspaper Contest. In 2006, Teresa published her debut book of poetry “How Fate's Confusion Connects" with Wheatmark Inc. She continues to publish poetry and appear at local poetry venues. In January 2012, Teresa launched her publishing imprint Heathermoors Books, through which she’ll release her own novels, starting with Warding Off Reality in 2012. When Teresa wants to wind down from writing, she reads (a lot!), goofs around with her 10-year-old daughter and executes mad roundhouse kicks in tae kwon do class.
