Michele Tesdall lives in Plano with her husband, three daughters and one son. Once upon a time, she worked as a Spanish-English bilingual teacher and taught in Houston and even in Guatemala City during a much more adventurous phase of her life. Now, most of her time is spent wrestling a pile of laundry that she's pretty sure has become sentient and seems to be angry about something. She does not love the pile of laundry but she does love to cook and to work out. She divides the rest of her time between the academic and extra-curricular needs of her kids and trying to figure out how to reinvent herself.
