Kathleen Tessaro Book and Novel

Kathleen Tessaro - Author


Born in Pittsburgh, Kathleen Tessaro studied drama at Carnegie-Mellon University before emigrating to London. After ten years working as an actress in films, television and theatre, she left the profession and spent several years working for the English National Opera, while training in the evenings as a drama teacher and voice coach.

During this time, she began to write. Working on short stories during her lunch hour, she soon became a regular member of the Wimpole Street Writers Workshop, a collection of female authors who meet every week. Her debut novel, Elegance, was a huge success, reaching number two in the Sunday Times bestseller list and gaining acres of press coverage. Kathleen is married with a son and lives in North London.
