Theresa Donnelly was born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in a theatrical household by avant-garde parents. To maintain a state of equilibrium she turned to reading and writing poetry. She loves the beautiful truth it can very often convey.

She enjoyed a career in Hospitality and Culinary Management. Living abroad in a variety of countries has enabled her to become socially involved in their communities. These experiences are reflected in her poetry. She has left pencil shavings and traces of herself in places as diverse as the David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage Nairobi to the Pyramids of Giza. From Kek Lok Si Temple Penang to the Sundsvall Fjord in Sweden.

Her poetry has been published in the Brooklin Town Crier, Surfacing Magazine, The Copperfield Review, Beret Days Press, Red Claw Press, Ink Bottle Press, Tales from the Forest (Irish publication) and The Caterpillar Magazine (Irish publication - stories - poems - art for children). She is the author of two poetry books ‘Moon Witch and Other Scary Poems (juvenile) and Recurrence of Blue.
