Tess Wheeler Mother of a Story - Mother Courage

We’re telling stories


Tess Wheeler went to school in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, and read English Literature at the University of York. After working as a financial editor in Hong Kong and London, she eventually surrendered to the pull of the beautiful Northumberland coast and returned home. Tess writes short stories and non-fiction articles for Medium and in 2017 she completed the first draft of her children’s novel, Codename Granbag. Two of her stories are included in anthologies called Starting Out and Fire, available on Amazon, and a compilation of her short fiction is due out before the end of 2018. She is currently finishing a second novel, Darkling Ford.

Tess is married with four children, three of whom have grown up and flown the nest. To fill the void left by diminishing ironing and housework, she is forced to spend her spare time writing, reading, beach-walking and wine-drinking.





If it's not 1 Thing, explores the topic of 'mother' from every angle imaginable and some you have not thought of. Each week,hosts Katie Mitchell and Lupe Padilla Mitchell share a new story and have great conversations with the writers, many of whom are in fact not writers by trade. We have excerpts from best selling novels, memoirs, poetry award winners, songwriters, stay at home moms, insurance brokers, teachers, actors, college students and beyond. Some famous. Some not at all. But they all have incredible tales to tell. Story is in our DNA. It's how we make sense of the world around us. We have so much to teach each other. We welcome you to rate and review us.
