Terry don Foley


Terry Don Foley is a Littlefield, Texas native having grown up on a working farm raising cattle, cotton, alfalfa hay, and sorghum. It was here that his love of life and adventure began, surrounded by a strong foundation of family and friends before he entered the oil fields of West Texas. It was in the oil patch that Terry found his calling, honing his skills as a drilling consultant, overseeing oil and natural gas development in North, Central and South America for a host of major oil and gas companies.

Terry has three adult children and a growing number of grandchildren. Tragically, his beloved daughter, Leigha Rose, died of cancer in 1996 following her courageous six year battle with cancer.

Mourning the loss of his beloved daughter and with alcohol as a crutch, Terry's world began to crumble. Soon he would find that his "drink of choice" was a diversion from reality. In 2009, Terry was convicted of a felony and would serve four years in a federal prison.

While incarcerated Terry wrote several short stories and a novel. By combining his imagination, experiences as a young man, knowledge of the jungle and love for Mayan history, his own unique style of writing was birthed. He published his first book in the fall of 2013, titled Ah Caca and the Demon Piri Aji, a short historical tale. The novel, Taste of Poison, soon followed and was also published on Amazon.

Today, Terry lives in his home town where he writes fiction and sees to the needs of his family. He is surrounded by a loving and forgiving community who knew him as a farm boy and one of their own. His life is simple - he lives to love and writes with a passion.
