Terry was born at the San Diego naval base on Coronado Island during the Korean War. Yes, she’s that old.
She had one of those idyllic childhoods, the kind that provide no fodder for angsty literary works. That might be one of the reasons Terry sticks with humor in her writing—it’s what she grew up with.
Terry met her future husband the night before fall term classes started their freshman year at the University of Oregon. He knew immediately they were meant to be together. She was the slow learner who needed a few months to catch up with the idea.
They live on a small ranch in northern California. Privacy, space, redwoods, and a Victorian style farmhouse with a view of the bay—more idyllic stuff.
Ten years after she graduated from college with a degree in History, Terry went back to get a teaching credential, because she’d always wanted to be a teacher. Ten years later, she went back and collected a Masters Degree in English, because she thought she’d give writing a try.
She’s been a student teacher, a substitute teacher, a high school teacher, a college lecturer, and a teacher for the elderly. That works out to time spent teaching every grade level from Kindergarten to convalescence—and plenty of experience for developing the characters in LEARNING CURVE.
Terry also loves to travel. She has escorted students to England, France, Italy, Mexico, Japan, and one of the most exotic places on earth: Hollywood. A few years ago, Terry and her husband celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with a visit to England, Ireland, North Ireland, and France. Guess which trip was her favorite?
