Teri Wilson takes over the Tule Blog!

TheArtofUs-300dpiHi, everyone! My name is Teri Wilson, and while I’m not new to writing, I’m new to Tule Publishing. I love, love, love writing romance, and I also write for a fun website called HelloGiggles.com, where I cover everything pop culture-related, from the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair to Oreos with Harry Potter’s face in the crème filling. (Seriously, I’ve written about both of those things this week.)

I’m really excited about my book for Tule, The Art of Us, which is a modern retelling of Pygmalion/My Fair Lady with a fine art twist. The heroine, Dr. Harper Higgins, is an art history professor and a Van Gogh scholar. She’s even got a one-eared dog named Vincent. (Aww, right?!) The hero of The Art of Us, Tom Stone, is a brooding former soldier. He’s also a painter.

My inspiration for Tom’s character came from a real-life initiative called The Combat Paper Project. Based in San Francisco, The Combat Paper Project helps warriors adjust to coming back home after serving their country in combat. They believe in the therapeutic process of art and creativity and help soldiers turn their actual wartime uniforms into paper pulp and gorgeous collages. Drew Cameron, one of the founders of this amazing organization says, “The story of the fiber, the blood, sweat and tears, the months of hardship and brutal violence are held within those old uniforms. The uniforms often become inhabitants of closets or boxes in the attic. Reshaping that association of subordination, of warfare and service, into something collective and beautiful is our inspiration.”

You can learn more about The Combat Paper Project at their website: www.combatpaper.org.

I do hope you’ll give Harper and Tom’s story a read. They share an emotional, romantic journey of healing and renewal, because love is its own work of art.

Thanks for reading!

Teri

  1. Hi Teri! It’s nice to learn more about you and the inspiration behind your new book. I really enjoyed The Art of Us and look forward to reading more of your books soon.

  2. I loved The Art of Us so much that I looked for you on Amazon to order something else you had written. I now have Unmasking Juliet on my Kindle and I’ll be starting it tonight. To me, it felt like the art in the story was flowing into the words. I did not want it to end. It will be one of my re-read again stories.

  3. Hi Teri! I recently finished The Art of Us and loved it. I had a feeling the idea for Tom’s uniform collage was drawn from real life and was so pleased to find that it is.

  4. I enjoyed reading your story very much. Great first story with Tule Publishing. I can’t wait to read your next one

  5. Welcome to Tule!! I’m looking forward to reading your book. I love the premise of your book and can understand how helpful this organization must be to soldiers who have returned from combat.
