Thérésa Hedges joins Pict Publishing



We are really happy to announce we have a new author joining the Pict family today. Thérésa Hedges officially becomes a Pict author and valued community member as of this morning, and now you can find her info and books across our website, pages and blog.


💖 About Thérésa


Thérésa Hedges is a Welsh writer, living with her husband and furbaby in a seaside town on the South Wales coast.

She originally trained as a psychologist then (when the Ghostbusters thing didn't work out) she went into teaching. All the while, she was writing, initially working on screenplays before moving on to be an award-winning playwright. She continues to work as a playwright/screenwriter, and recently completed work on the short “Like Glass”.

In 2015, Thérésa published her debut novel, the science-fiction thriller “Our Little Miracle”. 2016 saw the release of “Diary Of An Everyday Vampire”, and the story of a very different vampire - “Dominic”.

Her style is very visual, poetic, and has been described as "like Classic Gothic fiction of the best kind".

She has a penchant for writing strong, independent female characters as can be seen in all her books, including the latest book “Trash”. Her next book, “First Impressions” (inspired by her all-time favourite Austen novel) continues very much in this vein.

Thérésa describes herself as being 'multi-lingual, hyperactive and outdoorsy'. She is also an actress, singer, and is learning to play the guitar. She jokes that if/when anyone makes a film of Dominic, she'd like to play Aunt Melissa, please!
