Theresa Crater is a historical fiction, fantasy, and paranormal fiction author from Colorado in the United States. She is best known for bringing back to life secret societies, lost civilizations, and ancient temples in her several works of fiction. She wrote her debut novel “Under the Stone Paw” in 2006 and has never looked back since. Crater now has more than ten titles in the “Mystic Assassin” and “Power Places” series alongside several single standing novels and short stories. Most of her short stories are an exploration of myths of old brought back to life in the modern-day. Her novel “Return of the Grail King” was the winner of the Coalition of Visionary Resources Best Visionary Fiction while she won the Indie Spirit Best fiction award for her novel “The Star Family.” Theresa has also dabbled in metaphysical novels when under the pseudonym Louise Ryder she published the novel “God in a Box.” Crater has also authored a ton of literary criticism and poetry that has been published in several publications. When she is not writing, she can be found teaching British Literature in Denver, Colorado.

Theresa grew up smack right in the middle of the civil rights movement and this would teach her that anything is possible in this world. As a teenager, she went to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, a school that had so many writers you could not spit without hitting one. It was at the college that she learned much of what would form the foundation for her insights on Vedic philosophy. She would also become a meditation teacher as she ran out of money to support her schooling. Once she graduated from college, she went to Seattle for her graduate studies and then found a job teaching at the alternative school of Evergreen State College. It was the school that gained an international reputation and finally put behind the threat of closure that had loomed by the senate every four years before then. Theresa Crater currently lives with her partner who is just as avid an Egyptologist as she is. Together they have been to Egypt four times though he has visited and toured the country a lot more. They have also been to Europe, Cambodia, Central, and South America for vacations and to research her many novels.

As for her writing journey, it has been quite a wandering and long journey though she loves to quote Tolkien’s “All who wanted are not lost.” Theresa Crater started by publishing several short stories and then a poem before she wrote the manuscript for her first novel. The novel would get a ton of rejections before she finally read “Story” by Robert McKee, which was all she needed to know how to go about it. She sold “Under the Stone Paw” to Hampton Roads as a visionary fiction novel and it became a huge commercial success. She thought she had it made until the company was bought out and the new CEO got rid of the fiction line at a time when she had finished writing the manuscript for the sequel. It was a time when self-publishing was relatively unheard of and so she decided to find a small publisher. After two novels with the company, she opted to self-publish the novel “Star Family” since she did not like the offers she was getting from the small publishers. She loves the fact that she gets to keep all the money from the sales and her novels sell just as fine as when she does it with a traditional publisher.

“Under the Stone Paw” by Theresa Crater introduces a young and successful attorney named Anne Le Claire. She has so far managed to remain un-entangled from the dark gothic history of her family. But once her aunt dies and leaves her an antique necklace, there is no escape from it. Some bizarre things begin to happen. Things get out of hand when she bumps into Mike at a jewelry shop and even more when her secretive but very influential family start revealing some of the darkest secrets from the past. Before she can come to terms with the happenings, she discovers she is in the world of the Illuminati who are a powerful cabal that seems to know everything. Could Mike be part of the conspiracy and how much trust can she place on him since they have to go on an important mission to learn about the mysteries of some lost crystals? The novel is a thrilling ride that tells the story from the perspectives of the forbidden tunnels beneath the Sphinx to the upper-class residence of the elite of New York. From modern times when a shadowy cabal seeks to control humanity back to when Mary Magdalene and Jesus were fighting to free it.

Theresa’s Crater’s “Beneath the Hallowed Hill” opens to the Illuminati having opened a porthole through time. Ann Le Clair is traveling to Glastonbury with Michael Levy her mystic fiancé and Egyptologist. They intend to look into the affairs of the house that had been left to her by the aunt she had not seen for years who had mysteriously died. But they arrive to find trouble given that the twin springs of Avalon believed to be sacred are failing. Together Mike and Anne try to repair and restore the springs only to learn that there is a lot more that could be lost. Alexander Cagliostro the master Illuminati agent has worked his magic activating an ancient crystal tower. This has torn a hole in time and it is not only the Avalon Springs under threat but tens of others too. The man wants to gain spiritual knowledge and power greater than any man before him and he intends to do this by finding Atlantean artifacts. In the meantime, the priestess of ancient Atlantis has fled since her world is on the verge of destruction. She has taken with her the critical artifact even though Cagliostro is determined to find it.

Theresa Crater’s “Return of the Grail King” sees Anne Le Claire fighting to ensure that she will not be made a bad mother just because she is descended from family mystics. Her due date is coming up when Michael her husband is called away to explore an ancient Egyptian cave that had been discovered. Will the child hold off for a few days until her husband comes back? But destiny has other plans for the child even though a powerful enemy is planning to delay what would have been a powerful reincarnation. Michael down in Egypt hopes to complete the exploration of the site in Giza fast and got back home where his family is waiting. There is no time for any detours but he cannot resist the overture of the statue of Anubis that suddenly comes back to life taking him on a tour of Arthurian times. He discovers that he and Anne had been part of a grand betrayal and they can only make things right by traveling back in time. There is an unspeakable evil that has put their unborn child and the entire family fortune in peril. They may need to enlist the services of a modern-day Merlin to have any hope of defeating the plot against their family that has been in the making for hundreds of years.
