From Chicken Soup for the Dieter's Soul

Who Is Theresa Peluso?

Theresa has always felt drawn to a page and the power of words. Books represent knowledge, expression, freedom, adventure, creativity and escape—so it’s no surprise that her career has revolved around books.

Theresa’s career began over thirty years ago in a large publisher’s book club operation. In 1981, Theresa joined Health Communications, a fledgling book publisher that grew to become the country’s #1 self-help publisher and home to groundbreaking New York Times bestsellers and the series recognized as a publishing phenomenon, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

After twenty years spent in the day-to-day operations of a thriving publishing company, Theresa is now developing books as a writer, compiler and editor.

She is the coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Horse Lover’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Horse Lover’s Soul II, Chicken Soup for the Recovering Soul, its companion Chicken Soup for the Recovering Soul Daily Inspirations and Chicken Soup for the Shopper’s Soul.

In addition to other Chicken Soup books waiting to be hatched, Theresa is developing titles in the Read a Little Bit About . . . series. Read a Little Bit books help teens and young adults build literacy skills while focusing on relevant, contemporary topics and issues, such as buying a car or getting a job. Theresa is also working on Sonic Boomers: That Sound You Hear Is YOU Making a Difference, a book featuring unsung heroes of the baby boomer generation who have found fulfillment and growth in their lives by helping others.

Theresa lives in South Florida with her husband Brian and two cats who think they are dogs. All of her diligence and good dieting flies out the window at the first sign of a hurricane when her need for comfort food (Cheez Doodles and chocolate—not at the same time) kicks into high gear.
