Hello, and welcome to my website! My name is Tessa Lapointe, and I am a mystery author represented by Josh Getzler of HSG Literary Agency. I am currently working on my debut novel Detectives and Debutantes.

"Feeling Compromises Thinking", a little tribute to Detectives and Debutantes by Tessa Lapointe

I have a deep love for writing that started years ago and has only grown with time and experience. Along with this, I am a psychology major at the University of Iowa. I am passionate about mental health issues, having been diagnosed with anxiety, OCD, and ARFID (avoidant-restrictive food intake disorder), and I strive to bring such issues into the light with my writing to dispel some of the stigma surrounding them. For more information on this, check out my mental health writing advice.

Over the years, I’ve logged over a million words (no exaggeration) in cowriting with my best friend, Harriet Stuart. Together, we’ve created what we lovingly call “The Falker Life-Engulfing Project”. These books have been wonderful practice and fantastic learning opportunities that I’m sure I’ll talk more about in later posts.

Please leave a comment on the contact page if you have any questions or are interested in my work. I look forward to sharing my passions with you!
