Teresa has penned over thirty guidebooks and children's travel books on destinations around the world. As National Geographic's Switzerland expert, and a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers, she currently specialises in adventure travel and all things Alpine.

Her life-long love affair with the Alps began as a toddler on the slopes of Wengen. Since then she has lived, worked and skied all over Europe (often with her young family in tow); hiked many an Alpine pass; herded goats and made mountain cheese. She is yet to master yodelling.
