About Teresa

Teresa Vandello Neumann was born in Davenport, Iowa, the oldest child in a large Irish-Catholic family. It was there that she also met her musician husband, David. Teresa attended St. Ambrose University in Davenport for two years before moving to the West Coast. Today, Teresa and David live in Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley with their three children. As well as being an author, reporter and journalist, Teresa loves to fiddle on her violin and live la dolce vita in Italy whenever she can talk her family into it.
