Teresa Tumminello Brader was born in New Orleans and lives near Lake Pontchartrain; the city, the estuary, and its denizens are the source of much of her inspiration. Her first book, a hybrid memoir titled Letting in Air and Light, is forthcoming from Belle Point Press.

Her stories have been printed in anthologies, including Families: The Frontline of Pluralism (excerpt) from Wising Up Press; Coming Home: A 2010 Main Street Rag Short Fiction Anthology; and moonShine Review. Her story “Helter Skelter” was honored as a finalist in a Country Roads Readers’ Choice contest.

Her poetry has appeared in The Body Electric from Ars Omnia Press and The Body issue of MER’s The Mom Egg (Vol. 10). Her nonfiction articles, based on research and creativity, were published in Village D-Lights, a collectors’ magazine.
