Theresa Paolo lives in the same town she grew up in on Long Island, NY with her boyfriend and Milton, their big eyed goldfish. She has a hard time accepting the fact she’s nearing thirty which is why she writes new adult and young adult books, reliving the best and worst years of her life through her characters. She put her love of writing on hold while she received her bachelor’s degree in marketing from Dowling College. On November 11th 2011 at 11:11 she made a wish. Two hours later she was laid off. Jobless for the first time since she was sixteen, she was determined to make her wish come true. Writing became her life again and after many nights of ignoring her boyfriend to spend time with her characters, she finally received the call that all her hard work, finger-crossing, and eye-crossing paid off. When she’s not writing, she’s behind a camera or can be found in the blogosphere or on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook.
