Teresa Wong

Teresa Wong is a Canadian writer who had three children in less than five years. At first, she feared motherhood would destroy her, but she is pleasantly surprised to find herself continually remade. When the kids are asleep, she writes and draws pictures. When she is asleep, it’s never for long. Dear Scarlet is her first book.

Dear Scarlet

In the washroom, I saw myself for the first time as a mother. My face was swollen. My hair had vomit in it. I looked as good as I felt.
