Wald received a Bachelor's degree from Minot State University in North Dakota and has credits from eight other institutions of higher learning, including universities in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Canada. Her focus of studies has been in the field of business, an area she has predominately worked in throughout her adult life.
The author has traveled to eight different countries, visiting some of the countries several times. She enjoys writing, painting, sewing, reading, weaving and painting. Wald's oil and acrylic paintings have been displayed at two art shows, one of them at Lowe's Gardens. However, due to failing vision, the author no longer paints.

Theresa Wald has had poems published in Prairie People's Magazine, Plainswoman, Inner Reflections, A College Poetry Anthology, Editor's Choice Series, and the International Library of Poetry. "The History of Writing" is Theresa Wald's sixth published book.
