Lovely to have you here, I’m Tessa-Jean.
Also known as Tessa, Tess, Tj & T.
I am a writer from Southern Africa living in Colorado Springs, USA with my husband & sons. I love to be barefoot & fill my house with bold flowers.
I have been an avid reader for as long as anyone has known me & have had my nose in children’s books daily for 5+ years.
When I smile wide, my eyes disappear.
You are so welcome here
I write to help you & your family learn to say good byes & sit with hard feelings so that you enjoy the freedom that can accompany grieving well.
In an ideal world I would invite you over, pour you a cool drink & maybe pass a box of tissues while kids play in the sunshine and we talk about hard things.
Wherever in the world you are today, I am glad you are here with me.
This space is a new part of my writing journey & I hope my words will encourage you. When we can process the bitter parts together, we are freed to soak up the sweetness together too.
I’d love to know more about you. Feel free to sign up for my newsletter or find me on Instagram & introduce yourself.
During the Corona Virus pandemic, I published When I Can’t See Grandma, which is my first children’s book – but not my last.
