Teresa has long been accused of telling stories, which is a southern colloquialism for lying. Miserere: An Autumn Tale is her debut novel.
Teresa can be found most often at her blog and web site (www.teresafrohock.com). Every now and then, she heads over to Tumblr and sends out Dark Thoughts http://teresafrohock.tumblr.com, links to movies and reviews that catch her eye.

Brenda asks: “Out of all the scenes in your novel, which one was your favorite to write and which one was the most challenging for you?”
Hey, Brenda, thanks for having me here!
I loved writing the exorcism. From the very first line of MISERERE, I pictured in my mind exactly how that scene would play out and when I finally reached it, the characters shifted into place and it worked beautifully. I wanted the struggle to not just be between Lucian and the demon, but between Lucian and Rachael. It was hard to hit the right balance, but when the scene was finished I loved it.
The hardest scenes to write were those with Lindsay. I had the most difficult time getting in tune with her character. Weronika really helped me with Lindsay, and after about three passes over the manuscript, focusing on Lindsay’s scenes alone, I finally managed to come up with a believable child. My favorite scene with Lindsay is at the end when she finally comes into her own, and it was hard to write, because I hated being mean to the kid.
But hey, you do what you gotta do.
What about you? What are some scenes from your own work that were your favorites and which do you find most challenging?
The next interview in the blog tour will be at Jessica Torres’ blog http://afanaticbookblog.blogspot.com/ where I’ll be talking about where I’d spend my long term vacation if money were no object. I hope you’ll join me there.
