Editorial director Therese Walsh co-founded Writer Unboxed with Kathleen Bolton in 2006.
Therese pens unconventional coming-of-age novels. Her stories, dark and whimsical, feature twentysomething female protagonists who struggle to move beyond past tragedies in order to secure more hopeful futures.
Therese was the architect and primary editor of AUTHOR IN PROGRESS (Random House, 2016), a book about the key milestones a writer hits when writing a novel, with practical tips on how to reach those milestones while clearing psychological hurdles along the way. The book, a symphonic group effort, features fresh essays by ~50 Writer Unboxed contributors and industry pros.
She was a researcher and writer for Prevention magazine before she became a freelancer. She’s had hundreds of articles on nutrition and fitness published in consumer magazines and online, but she loves her fiction best of all–directing the lives of made-up people and stamping around in a puddle of theme.
Her favorite things include music, flash fiction, poetry, art, crab legs, Whose Line is it Anyway?, dark chocolate, photography, unique movies and novels, people watching and strong Irish tea. She has a master’s degree in psychology.
