As a native Houstonian, a rarity these days, Terry holds two licensures in the state of Texas: one in chemical dependency counseling, the other in massage therapy. In 2004, she trained to be a volunteer for Houston Hospice, a life-changing training session she believes would benefit all. -“Hospice, contrary to popular belief, is not about dying but about helping people live until they die.”
Although writing has been part of her genetic lineage, the writing bug didn’t officially bite until 2007. From then on, her passion sprouted and came into full bloom. She is an observer by nature… “ask any close friend or family member. I’ve studied movie characters and dialogues for years, which can often become annoying to said above friends and family…I can almost see the bobble-head nods of agreement…”
Her intent is to deliver stories with wisdom, warmth, a medley of emotions and always a touch of humor, which she often finds to be the elixir of life. “When I write, I pull from what I know—real people, real life and all the obstacles in between.”
Terry is proof it is never too late to reinvent yourself or pursue a dream. Her first novel, Saving Gracie, was published in 2012, the year she turned sixty years old. Her second novel, Partly Sunny was released in September 2013. Time Trials, Book #3 is scheduled for an early 2015 release.
“I’ve always said I’m a late bloomer…”

Sometimes the road to our 'fairytale life' is paved with potholes, and the castle at the end of the road turns out to be an apartment, but as long as it's filled with people we love, isn't that what really matters?
A story about a mother-daughter relationship, while strained in life, finds a way to blossom in death.
