Terese (Daly) Ramin is the oldest of eight children and mother of two. Much of Terese's work grew out of staying up well past the bedtime imposed by her parents and telling stories to her younger brothers and sisters.
A brush with mortality made her pull up her socks and finish her first novel in 1987. It won the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award that same year. Since then, she is the author of ten romance and romantic suspense novels, numerous short stories, and the creator/editor/author of the charitable collaboration Bewitched, Bothered & BeVampyred.
With author David Wind, she co-wrote the medical-legal thriller THE WHISTLEBLOWER'S DAUGHTER.
July 9, 2019 saw the release of her first urban fantasy romance, SOUL KEEPER (Book 1 of The Brotherhood of Shadows), co-written with Dawn Johanson under the name Cathryn Marr.
Terese has spent a lifetime rescuing the dogs and cats (and the occasional reptile and amphibian) that turn up on her doorstep swearing they only followed the signs that said "free love here." She is positive she never posted those signs. She currently resides in Michigan with her husband and 4 dogs.
