Teresa Wong is a Calgary writer who had three children in less than five years. At first, she feared motherhood would destroy her, but is pleasantly surprised to find herself continually remade. When the kids are asleep, she writes and draws pictures. When she is asleep, it's never for long.

Dear Scarlet is her first book. Follow her on Instagram @by_teresawong, where she posts drawings for her children.
