As a fiction writer, Teresa Funke celebrates ordinary people. In fact, she takes a very unusual approach to her stories—they are all based on interviews with real people.
Teresa’s latest is War on a Sunday Morning. Written for readers age nine and up, War on A Sunday Morning is about a 13-year-old girl named Rose Williams. Rose has trouble fitting in. She is shy. Every time her family moves to a new navy base, she wishes she could be more like her fearless brother. And then, on a Sunday morning in December of 1941, Rose hears the roar of low-flying planes. Soon, Rose realizes that, scared or not, everyone must be daring in times of war.
War on A Sunday Morning is the fifth book in Theresa’s Home Front Heroes novels, which have all focused on different conflicts and different main characters.
Theresa’s short stories, articles, and essays have appeared in
numerous magazines, newspapers, and anthologies. Two of her essays
were listed as Notable Essays by the prestigious "Best American
Essays" series. She also writes a popular blog, "Bursts of
Brilliance for a Creative Life."
