Born in the Ohio Valley, Terri moved below the Mason Dixon line in the early 1990s after experiencing three blizzards in 18 months. Seeking warmer climes and a career in the music business, she landed in Nashville and learned fast getting a job on Music Row is not as easy as it sounds. Ironically, it wasn't until she left Nashville and moved to Arkansas that she found her way into radio. Being a disc jockey was the perfect job for this extrovert, being paid to talk for several hours a day, listen to endless amounts of music, and if a listener changed the channel (rejection!), she had no idea. Looking for a change, Terri moved to the east coast, settled near the ocean, earned her Bachelors Degree while raising a daughter, and joined cubicle land once again. But love of the written word pulled her into an amazing online Romance community and she started putting words on the page. Five years later, in 2012, she was named a finalist in the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart contest. Shortly after she signed with an agent and moved into publication. As for hidden talents, she makes a killer lasagna.
