Teryl Oswald


Upon earning a BA in Spanish and Speech Communication, Teryl used her writing skills to build a career in the adult education field–all the while yearning to create fictional characters who used snappy dialogue. In 1995, she partnered with a brilliant entrepreneur (her former-husband) to start a home healthcare company. Teryl lives with her husband, Alden, in Omaha. They share eight daughters, two of them teenagers, who challenge her negotiating skills daily. Getting remarried at age 50+, her biggest adjustment was learning to answer when being called ‘Grandma.’
