Teresa Mathews is a graduate of The University of South Alabama. She’s a member of the Mobile Writers Guild and serves on the Board of Directors for the Alabama Nursery and Landscape Association.
An avid gardener and artist, she has multiple book covers to her credit. Several years ago after visiting the site of her real-life aunt’s murder, Teresa discovered another passion–storytelling. Although inspired by an actual tragedy, Thirteen Steps to the Cellar is fiction.
Raised on the Gulf Coast, Teresa, her husband, and son now live on a farm with a second home on the sparkling white sands of Fort Morgan, Alabama.
There were thirteen steps to the cellar. They were steep and they were narrow, but was a fall down them enough to have caused the twenty-seven deep lacerations to her aunt’s head? In the charming town of Richmond, Maine, Callie uncovers the community’s darkest secrets. The web of intrigue extends far beyond Callie's suspicions and its connection to her personal story pierces her to the core.
