Theresa Le Flem
Theresa Le Flem was born in London but has spent years in Kent and Cornwall.
Her creative life began by writing poetry, painting and throwing pots but a succession of jobs followed – from factory-work, retail sales to hairdressing. After retiring, her ambition to write full-time materialized. She has been a member of the RNA since 2012.
With a keen interest in social history, industrial unrest and family relationships, Theresa draws her inspiration from the difficult everyday experiences of life. However, her heroines usually find that in the midst of hardship, love blossoms.
Theresa enjoys painting, poetry, the sea and music. She and her husband Graham, an electrical engineer, live in the Midlands, UK and have recently bought an “almost derelict” cottage in Guernsey, which they are hoping to modernise.
Theresa also attends the Leicester Chapter of the RNA, the Belmont Belles run by the lovely Lizzie Lamb, when she can get there.
To date, she has published four novels and a book of poetry. In chronological order, The Sea Inside His Head, The Forgiving Sand, The Gypsy’s Son and Dreamcatcher Girl. Her poems and drawings can be found in Meet Me at Low Tide.
