A native Bostonian, Theresa Hickey has written two chapbooks of poems, Raising the Child and Sighs of a Gracious Nature. Her third book of poems, To Life, is nearing completion. Her poetry and essays have received favorable reviews by the Italian-American Press. One of her poems, “Words” received an honorable mention in an event sponsored by Ave Maria University and Notre Dame’s Faith ND published another. “Golden Days” received a Naples Magazine “Enny” writers award (FL). The Sextant and other journals have published her work.
Many of Theresa’s poems reflect her love for the coastal, woodland and mountainous regions of New England—places that broaden her perspectives and inspire the sacred. Married for fifty-three years, the mother of four children and grandmother of five, she is retired from Salem State University in Massachusetts where she was an administrator, promoting hundreds of productions sponsored by the Center for Creative and Performing Arts.
