Tess is an artist and author residing in south west Michigan. She is currently an adjunct instructor in the Art Department at Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Writing is an outlet for her creative curiosity and provides a mental escape from long, grey Michigan winters.
The novel A Wanderer’s Soul was inspired by Tess’ travels throughout Europe and Turkey. On one memorable tour, during her journey, she had the opportunity to accompany a professor of Art History from Columbia University into the crypts of a working monastery. There she was inspired by a former inhabitant’s medieval tomb. The monk’s beautiful marble effigy suggested a man of wisdom and playfulness. His face was adorned with the slightest of grins. One that caused visitors to pause and contemplate. The nameless monk, and his mysterious repose, became my vision of my central character, Abbott Corelli.
A Wanderer’s Soul chronicles the perilous journey of two young adventurers as they become embroiled in a quest for answers to a mysterious relic entrusted to the lone survivor of the fall of St. Stephens. Friar Benito, the keeper of the rare artifacts, and sacred texts, of the monasteries reliquary must seek out the help of a renowned scholar to unlock the mysteries of the relic they carry. To find him the three will travel to the far reaches of the crumbling Eastern Byzantine empire; while learning to trust one another and accepting the help of strangers put in their path.
