'To Romania with Love', Tessa's first book, was published by Quartet Books in May 2012.
Tessa is currently researching the extraordinary life of Queen Marie of Romania (grand-daughter of Queen Victoria and probably the most significant woman in the First World War). Having got a distinction in her Masters she is now swithering between a Queen Marie book or Phd......... In between bouts of postgrad research she also writes numerous articles and features for several national publications... most recently The Times, Countryside Magazine, History Today and Huffington Post. Below are further examples of her work:
Inspired by wartime stories of giving birth at home Tessa decided to chart her own experience for BBC1 Inside Out London. She wrote about the experience for the Mail on Sunday.
In need of some perspective during the credit crunch Tessa recounted the hardships her mother-in-law tolerated in Ceausescu's Romania for The Guardian. In The Telegraph she explained how she met her Romanian husband.
Almost 20 years after the Revolution, Tessa revisited Bucharest to trace the impact of Romania's communist dictator, Ceausescu, on the capital. Here is the article she wrote for the Independent Traveller.
Dying of cancer, Tessa's father decided to donate his body to science. Shocked that there was a need for bodies in Britain Tessa found out more for The Herald. After her father, Donald Dunlop, died in June 2009 Tessa wrote about his decision to donate his body to science in the Mail on Sunday.
