About Theresa

Theresa James survived a life-altering event, which she shared in her first book, Healing Tears, in hopes of inspiring and helping others through their life struggles. Her journey of healing has been long but one through which she has remained positive. She has since published three children’s books – I Love and Like You!, Ornaments of Love, and Precious Time – honoring the lives of her children: Jarod, Sean, and Brandi, respectively. Theresa’s fourth book, Shared Courage, is dedicated to her daughter, Courtney. Born in Southern Indiana, James is a proud veteran of the US Air Force. After living many years in Ohio and later the Chicago area, she returned home to Indiana, where she currently resides with her husband, Todd.

James didn’t share her tragic story for almost twenty years. Now, as a means to inspire and encourage others, she offers insight into that life-altering event.

“Writing was therapeutic and healing as I acknowledged each emotion, worked through how and why I felt that way, found forgiveness, and was able to accept the loss of my children. I cherish each memory and am ok with laughing, crying, screaming or smiling.”
