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.
She writes in two distinct genres: Historical Saga and Mythic Fiction (a sub-genre of fantasy) and is one of the growing breed of "hybrid authors," who both self-publish and write for publishers. She is currently under contract to Little, Brown, for the Fox Bay Saga, while continuing to self-publish The Lynher Mill Chronicles.
