In 2002 Therese was accepted into the economics programme at the University of Gävle, Sweden. In 2004 she attended the Erasmus exchange student programme and completed a double degree of Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, recognised in the Netherlands and in Sweden. On her return to Sweden she thereafter completed the Masters of Science in Business and Administration. In 2006 Therese ventured to seek employment abroad to satisfy her curiosity for her interest in the cultural differences experienced on her studies in the Netherlands. She looked for work in Great Britain and found opportunities in Gibraltar. She briefly relocated to live near Marble Arch in London, but quickly realised the work/life balance shifted to eighteen hours of working and commuting with no time to spare for creativity and personal development. In 2007 she relocated back to Gibraltar where the diverse cultures were a large source of inspiration.
Having always been a free spirit at heart, her dream had always been to write fantasy novels where she could have the opportunity to travel and manage her own working hours around family and activities. She also wanted to continue her career in the finance sector. In 2017 she completed her studies with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Alongside her studies she rapidly climbed the career ladder into becoming the Head of Finance in a bank in Gibraltar.
Your life is your dream,
-if you can dream it, you can live it-

She has planned to launch more books in the coming years and has also done two collaborative projects in the Anthologies The Prophecy of Magic and Kisses and Curses. In 2018, Therese wanted to inspire her daughter to write and hence commencing her journey down the route of also creating children’s books containing illustrations by her daughter.
