Biography

Tedi Tuttle Wixom, raised in rural Idaho, USA couldn’t have asked for a better place for adventure, learning, and fun to fuel the stories she writes. She believes that much of what she learned at home on a ranch continues to impact her life. Her artist mother taught her piano and singing, a love of art and animals, compassion for others, a love of words and language and how words are used. Her father loved to read, perform in community theatre, dance, recite poetry and was a world traveler in the Navy. Thus, she grew up reading dictionaries, encyclopedias, and maps.

After an active career in high school of theatre, cheerleading, track, and art, she began her formal education at Ricks College (BYU-Idaho) as a commercial art and design major, served a gospel outreach mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) to the Florida Tallahassee Mission for 18 months, married Lynn Wixom three years later, and moved to Provo, Utah as a young married couple to complete more education. She also served as the President of the League of Utah Writers, Oquirrh (OH cur) Chapter, has taught writing classes to school groups, and volunteers her time reading her Children’s books at local schools. In the midst of raising children, cats, dogs, and college graduates, she made time to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in English at Brigham Young University (BYU) in 2012 and she plans to complete and publish all the books she began to write over the past 20 years.

As the mother of nine children, she enjoys cooking up new recipes, hiking, sewing, writing music, poetry, and singing, participating over the years in groups such as: The Sweet Adelines, Jay Welch Chorale, Legacy Chorale, and The Salt Lake Symphonic Choir. She and her son, Jason, wrote King Tut the Musical 10 years ago and she has been working on converting the storyline into a novel that will be called Joseph: based on King Tut the Musical. Her book A Whisper of Springtime: Jason’s Heart Transplant Miracle is a true story about her son’s heart transplant and is available in E-book format as well as softbound.
