Terry was born in Cedar Lake, Indiana, and moved to South Carolina at the age of 12 with his family in 1981.
In the early days, Terry was, for the most part, never interested in English or writing. Not until Terry attended Clemson University and majored in Mechanical Engineering did he discover he did like and enjoy writing. His interest in writing started with English 101, continued through English 102, and he even used English courses as electives toward the ME degree he never did earn. He surprised his adviser at Clemson when Terry asked about minoring in English while in an engineering major. The school did not offer such a thing and, to his adviser, it sounded ridiculous.
In 1997, Terry teamed with Michael Wright, “The Different Strummer,” a writer for Vintage Guitar Magazine, and assisted with the research and writing of a history on Kramer guitars. Michael shared the byline with Terry and would later mention Terry in a couple other articles in Vintage Guitar Magazine.
Terry got involved in writing again, several years later, when he wrote a few articles for the US Desmo club magazine, “Desmo Leanings,” and would later be named the Technical Editor for the publication.
Terry is a stereotypical “workaholic” as he is always working on many things at the same time. At the time this book was written, he was working his regular 40+ hour-per-week job, teaching a class and taking a class at a technical college, advertising and showing a rental house while seeking a new tenant, maintaining their 31-acre horse farm, and so many other things. Some of the most enjoyable things Terry does are having 3Ds with Audrey. [Note - “3D” is short for Daddy-Daughter-Dinner].
