    About the Author :  Tessa van Vliet was born under a Dutch Tuesday moon in the 90s and grew up in Oud-Beijerland learning to whistle the Adam’s Family theme. One day on a blue moon she’ll pack her bags and move to the Scottish Highlands to become a cryptid living in the woods. She teaches English to teens and tries to teach them to be kind and curious. She is on a mission to pet all the dogs in the world. Apollo’s Playbook is her first book, and she hopes Apollo won’t pull a ‘Cassandra of Troy’ on her. When not writing poetry Tessa writes on a story that seems to be never ending. She hopes you will enjoy this book as much as she enjoyed writing it.
