Interview with Terrance L. Weber

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing? I grew up during the years of the Great Depression which was from 1929 until 1939. During those years my family moved to new Philadelphia area houses about 13 timess.
While growing up I went to 13 different schools where I had to make new friends at every new school. All of my teachers kept encouraging me to "write more." Very gradually I learned to write stories that were interesting to my readers. Later while serving on a light cruiser in the US Navy during WW11, I wrote many letters to my family and my girlfriends back home. Then, while attending college under the GI Bill, I took as many courses as were available about writing. Then I spent about two years working as an advertising copywriter of sales letters for an agency in in Dayton, Ohio where my writing and marketing talents were honed and sharpened to the point where I became an award winning sales letter copywriter with national recognition. Since then, I've made a successful living as a writer as I helped many clients increase sales by using my sales letters. Now, I've become an author of 8 books about a wide range of subjects. You are cordially invited to buy and read my books.
When did you first start writing? See previous explanation.
