About Tess

Best-selling Amazon author, Tess Summers is a former business woman and teacher who always loved writing but never seemed to have time to sit down and write a short story, let alone a novel. Now battling MS, her life changed dramatically, and she has finally slowed down enough to start writing all the stories she’d been wanting to tell, including the fun and sexy ones!  

Married over twenty years with three grown children, Tess is a former dog foster mom who ended up failing and adopting them instead. She and her husband (and their six dogs) split their time between the desert of Arizona and the lakes of Michigan, so she’s always in a climate that’s not too hot and not too cold, but just right! 

Don't Shop - Adopt


As a former dog foster mom, I've seen the plight of shelter animals firsthand (here's five of my six helping me write!) 

I try to include at least one rescue animal in each of my books to highlight the importance of adopting a shelter or rescue pet. 

Support your reputable rescue groups in your area. They really are working the front lines.

*You can't buy love, but you can rescue it.*



Wounded Warrior Project


 WWP is a charity that I often reference in my books. It is a fantastic organization supporting our wounded heroes.   

National Multiple Sclerosis Society


 MS is an autoimmune disease that has affected me personally. Since sharing my story, I'm amazed at the number of other people who are afflicted with this disease that is often hard to diagnose. Click below to learn more about multiple sclerosis.
