Tess Signs A Two-book Deal With Random House

Tess Signs A Two-book Deal With Random House

In May 2013, I signed a two-book deal with Random House. My first book, The Blender Girl is the lead title for Ten Speed Press and will be released April 8th, 2014. 

With huge interest from retailers and the media, The Blender Girl has already hit Crown Publishing’s Top 25 Pre-Orders on Amazon.  

My first book contains 100 Gluten Free, Vegan Recipes - delicious and nutritious smoothies, drinks, appetizers, snacks, salads, soups, main dishes, desserts, and condiments that you can whip up in a blender.  

I embark on a national book tour in April 2014, starting in Los Angeles, and heading to NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Denver, Phoenix, Portland, Miami, Kansas City, and other cities to be confirmed. 

I hope to see you at one of my book signings!

The Blender Girl Partners with Vitamix as The Face of their Recipe and Technique Videos

I am very proud to announce that I have partnered with Vitamix as the face of their new recipe and technique videos. Those of you who have been following me for a while know I couldn't live without my beloved Vitamix! So, when Vitamix approached me to present the videos for their new website I was thrilled. 

As an actor, presenter, and voice over artist, I have worked with many companies on various projects throughout the years. But the Vitamix job was a dream come true for me. I had so much fun working with this fantastic company and the phenomenal crew from Space Junk Media.

When the Vitamix 750 professional series prototype landed on my doorstep in preparation for the shoot, I squealed like a giddy teenager. The UPS delivery man thought I was a little odd. LOL! I felt incredibly privileged knowing I was only the second person in the world to cook with this machine! Just me and Vitamix's WONDERFUL head chef, Bev Shaffer, who helped me enormously with this shoot. 

Check out the AMAZING new Vitamix website. Compare product lines before you purchase a machine and find delicious Vitamix recipes in the fabulous new recipe centre. Be inspired by the Vitamix spotlight, where top chefs like Alex Guarnaschelli share their experiences with Vitamix. You might even see someone else you know!

I just LOVE this company. They invited me out to their international headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, and I was BLOWN AWAY by Jodi Berg, her entire staff, and their incredible facility. I watched Vitamix machines being assembled by hand and met so many lovely, happy Vitamix employees. For me, it was like visiting Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory! I was like a kid in a candy store, and they welcomed me into the family with open arms and incredible generosity. 

I didn't think I could love this company any more, but I do! The Vitamix production standards and company philosophy are truly inspiring; and their customer service is exceptional.

Be sure to check out all of my recipe and technique videos and let me know what you think. The Vitamix recipes are SCRUMPTIOUS. 


Tess Masters is the voice of Marissa Ronson "Tweed" in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

I was thrilled to voice the sassy demolition weapons expert, Marissa Ronson - codenamed "Tweed" in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

I had a blast working on this game with Liam O'Brien, Sam Riegel, Andrew Kishino, Nika Futterman, Imari Williams, Gwendoline Yeo, David Cooley, Eden Riegel, Courtenay Taylor, Michelle Ruff, Gideon Emery, Gregg Berger, Desmond Askew, and many others!

Tweed has such spunky hilarious lines, and constantly plays off the other members of the Special Ops Echo Six Team with quick wit as they fight off the hordes of zombies!


Tess Masters is the voice of Bernie Mataki in Gears Of War 3

I was thrilled when Epic Games officially announced the cast of Gears Of War 3. I absolutely LOVED the Gears Of War books and fell in love with the wildly spirited Bernie Mataki. It was a blast bringing her to life!

I had SO much fun immersing myself in the Gears world and working with the amazingly talented Chris Borders, Rod Ferguson, and the rest of the team at Epic Games, Microsoft and Technicolor.

I started working on this game in late 2010, and finished in early 2011. It is such a relief I don't have to keep the secret any more!

I am excited to play Gears 3 now!
