I live in Melbourne, Australia and run a business designing and printing Meerkat Art greeting cards. For many years I worked on the corporate side of broadcasting, but the desire to do what I love (mainly make art) was too strong. So I left to set up my own business. I wrote my first novel, White Breakers, and decided Smashwords was a great place to publish. If enough people like my book, I'll write another one. Writing in the traditional romance genre has been a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy my work. Thanks for visiting my page. I'd love to hear your feedback.

Terry LaBarba learned she could entertain through creative writing when she was a sixth grader and her class gave a round of applause after she read aloud a humorous story that she put together using the twenty spelling words for the week. Much later, with a creative streak unleashed, she wrote screenplays around premises she would like to see on screen with her favorite actors. The scripts became novels and her studies became metaphysical, always interested in new methods for healing the mind, body and spirit.
With intuitive skills and a quest for better healing results, she left her training in the medical field for energy medicine and the ancient, shamanic practice of Huna.

I always wanted to write, even as a kid, and now I do. I can transfer the desire to other projects and often do - but if there is nothing much on then I need to write.
In my past life in the technical world I was often puzzled by colleagues who hated writing in the way that some people hate maths.They were forced to write whereas the pen had to be wrested from my hand.
When my children were young I wrote for them. I clearly recall reading the second chapter of a book I started on the lives of a family of city foxes. I had almost finished reading a section in which most of the cubs were gassed in their earth when I looked up and was amazed to see tears streaming down the faces of my two daughters.
