Daily Inspiration: Meet Teresa Howell

Today we’d like to introduce you to Teresa Howell.

Hi Teresa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I wrote my first novel in 2016. I wasn’t expecting it to sell. Within 1 year, I sold over 10K copies. Right then I realized I was on to something beyond my scope of understanding. The book was a cliffhanger and readers wanted more. So I started to write the second one.

From there, my books started climbing up the amazon Christian fiction chart and I turned the story “That Church Life” into a play. That’s when TB Productions was born. I decided to create a production company that would focus on theatre, music, literary works, and film. The play became a household name in the North Carolina area.

When Covid hit, I started 2 podcasts called Amplified Exposure live and The Heat Seekers. I interviewed individuals such as Judge Joe Brown, Luenelle, The Jackson brothers, and many more. The Heat Seekers wasn’t doing so well as a podcast as it supported indie artists. So I decided to turn the idea into a magazine.

That was the springboard of The Heat Seekers Magazine, The Educator Magazine, and PodStars Magazine which can all be seen in over 13 countries outside of the US. TB Productions continues to create authentic content that can be seen and heard around the globe.

Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I struggled with finding individuals that would stick with the plan. Each individual I partnered with in the beginning wanted to come in and change things. I stuck to my vision and eventually found the right team that fit my needs.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am best known for my writing. I currently have 5 books published and 4 more coming out before December 2022.

I am most proud of my writing accomplishments as it has sparked so many of the other projects that I have within my production company, I feel I am set apart due to my unique writing style. I like mystery and suspense and to incorporate that into Christian fiction is a huge task.

But I love what I do. My latest projects with my magazines are also something I am most proud of as well.

We’d love to hear what you think about risk-taking?
Yes, I have taken great risks in spite of the odds. I started this journey with very little money and a dream. I didn’t know the outcome but I am so glad I pushed forward in spite of my doubts. I never imagined that I would be where I am today.
