Teresa Lo is an Asian-American author, blogger, television personality, and screenwriter. Her young adult novel, Hell's Game, was an Amazon bestseller in 2013; and her Asian-American series, The Red Lantern Scandals, received media attention because of its graphic depiction of Asian-American female sexuality. Hyphen Magazine wrote, "The book is not just about sex but about discovering and celebrating one’s independence." In 2013, she was the judge of Hyphen Magazine's first ever erotica writing contest. Lo has a Masters in Fine Arts in Writing for Screen and Television from the University of Southern California. She has a bachelor's degree in History from the University of Kansas, and KU named her a Woman of Distinction, one of the highest honors the university bestows upon female alumni or students.
