On Facebook, you can find her at: The Tin Box Secret, or you can become “FB friends” with the main character of the story, Julie Ventura (Just look for the Flower Power image in the profile picture).
Theresa Dodaro grew up on Long Island, New York, and graduated from Stony Brook University before working in Publishing and Marketing.
The trilogy was inspired by Kate Chopin’s The Awakening, which was published in 1899. It was thought to be so inappropriate for women to read, it was ordered to be taken off of bookshelves. Kate Chopin’s work of fiction affected Theresa greatly when she read it in college. The idea of the lack of choice that women experienced in centuries past, motivated her to write this trilogy to inspire women, young and old alike, to appreciate the choices that they do have today.
Through her writing, Theresa hopes to pass along the message that no matter what has happened to you in the past, there is one choice that cannot be taken away from you. You can choose to let the past destroy you, or you can choose to survive and thrive in spite of it.
