Thea Kvamme was born in a small town in northern Minnesota but grew up in Decorah, IA. She is currently living in Minnesota again with her family and is a mom to four great kids. She has always dreamed of being a writer and took creative writing classes in both high school and college.
After 19-years of working with the elderly in nursing homes, she changed up her career path by becoming an infant and toddler teacher, following in her mom’s footsteps of previous years. Writing, of course, is still her passion, but knitting is becoming a close second!
Upon receiving her mom’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease, Thea quickly realized she needed to write a children’s book to help them through the process of having a grandparent or other family member change, as well as help them understand what is happening. Her debut book, scheduled for an August 2020 release, is a fantastical children’s fiction book for the young reader, ages three to ten years old.
Thea’s family has always meant the world to her, and she cherishes every moment she has with her children and siblings, as she did with her parents. She hopes to pursue a career in writing, to help anyone escape from reality – even just for a short while – and enter a fantasy world!
