Teresa Sundmark moved to Alaska from Colorado in 1992, never fully expecting to stay for so long. She and her husband Dean found their way to Homer in 1994 and decided there was no better place to raise their two children.
Teresa has worked at the Homer Public Library since it was located on Pioneer Avenue and is an adjunct creative writing professor at the Kachemak Bay Campus of the Kenai Peninsula College.
Teresa has written for the High Country News and on her personal blog about a range of topics including Alaska’s changing climate, her personal quest to reduce plastics in her life as well as a number of social issues.
In 2014 she graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with an MFA in creative writing. When she’s not writing or working, she enjoys gardening, playing old-time fiddle music and hiking.
