Terri was born in Plymouth in 1965. At the age of 9 she moved with her family to Cornwall, to the village featured in Jamaica Inn -- North Hill -- where she discovered a love of writing that has stayed with her ever since. She also discovered apple-scrumping, and how to jump out of a hayloft without breaking any bones, but no-one's ever offered to pay her for doing those.
Since publishing in paperback for the first time in 2002, Terri has appeared in both print and online fiction collections, and is proud to have contributed to the Shirley Jackson award-nominated hardback collection: Bound for Evil, by Dead Letter Press.
As a Hybrid author, her first commercially published novel was Maid of Oaklands Manor, published by Piatkus Entice (a digital-first* imprint of Little, Brown) in 2013
*This book is now available in mass market paperback, at Waterstones and other print retailers, and from Amazon Worldwide
The sequel, A Rose in Flanders Fields, was published by Carina UK (a digital-first imprint of HarperCollins) in 2014.
The third book in this series, Daughter of Dark River Farm, was also published by Carina, in early 2015.
