Tressa never thought her first true crime story would be her own. The title of the book is, ‘The Stalking of Tressa Graves The MONSTER of Melbourne’ and reliving the experience is something she did not want to do. But, by suggestions of the law enforcement involved, she decided to move forward with it. The officers have said this is the worst case of stalking they’ve ever seen and suggested the story should be shared with others.
Though Tressa enjoys living in east Tennessee and taking weekend drives in the mountains, her heart still yearns for the swamps in her home state of Florida. She is a fanatical fan of Dolly Parton and who was the impetus for Tressa to move to Tennessee.
