The second of seven children, Theresa Nash was born in Waterloo, Iowa, in 1950. Her father was a well-known doctor, and her mother was active in many community organizations. Nash grew up to earn her BA in economics and an MBA in finance.
She moved to Geneva, Switzerland, in 1975 and has lived there ever since. Although the world of finance has always dominated her professional career, she exhibits her artistic side by playing the violin in a local orchestra, singing in choirs and as a solo vocalist, and acting in plays and musicals.
Il Molo is her previously published novel. Nash is married to a famous Swiss artist. Her daughter is currently pursuing a master’s degree in marketing and management.
