Teresa Bassett writes mysteries and adventure stories for young and young-at-heart adults, mostly set in her home county of Cornwall, UK. A graduate of the University of Bath, she formerly worked as a foreign language teacher, magazine writer and translator. She also spent eleven years with educational charity The Eden Project, where she learned all kinds of wonderful things about plants and people.

In 2013 Teresa was over the moon when the manuscript for her debut mystery adventure The Time Crystals reached the final five Young Adult titles in Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award, going on to win international contest The Next Novelist. More recently, in 2020, she was awarded first prize in Crowvus’s Ghost Story competition.

Her second novel, The Mystery of Acorn Academy, was published by Authors Reach in 2021. This is the first in a series of standalone Cornish Mystery Adventures, with the next book to follow in 2022. Also scheduled for release in 2022 is Flight of the Bluebird, the sequel to The Time Crystals.
