Theresa Howell is a writer, an editor, a mom, a hiker, and a devourer of books. Her fascination with books began at an early age and continues to gain momentum. Today, she reads them, writes them, edits them, teaches them, and carries one around with her wherever she goes.
She began her career in publishing as a children’s book editor with Rising Moon, where she helped to establish the bilingual imprint, Luna Rising. She is the editor of numerous award-winning and best-selling children’s books including My Name is Celia: The Life of Celia Cruz by Monica Brown, There Was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea by Jennifer Ward, and Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle. Today, she writes stories of her own and works as an independent children’s book editor. Theresa lives in Colorado with her husband and two daughters where she hikes, reads, dances, and dreams.
