Terry grew up in New Jersey where she attended college and earned a degree in creative writing. She spent the next decade working in the corporate world in New York City and still misses good pizza. When her family decided to relocate from the East Coast, they chose Colorado, where Terry has followed her bliss ever since. On weekends, she likes to explore the mountains around her home and is an aspiring amateur photographer. Terry has one grown daughter who is also a writer and lives in The Netherlands, and her four-legged entourage consists of a rescued Vizsla and an inherited cat.
