Once she began writing, she found this wasn't always possible, as evidenced when the mystery she intended to write rapidly became a romance.

However, her entry into the world of writing can be attributed to a "mistake" when her son mentioned the Highlander television series on a visit home. Being the "good mother" she began watching the show and soon connected with the world of fanfiction, first as a r...more


It’s Passover. My daughter, Jessica, lives in a small town in Northern Ireland, where she has as much trouble finding Passover foods as I do in Divide. However, she’s much more energetic than I am, and made her own macaroons. She said she thinks she found this recipe somewhere on about.com. I found some ready-made ones down near my other daughter’s house when I was helping out after her surgery...

I got this in a boxed set, and didn't feel it was as strong as the others. Too many cliches, very few surprises, and I confess I became more critical when the character mentioned his six foot four inch legs. That's one tall seal!

Terry Odell My Free Read, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PAGE is now available from Cerridwen Press.

Finding the perfect hero and heroine for a romance novel can turn a writer’s hair gray—that’s why I advertise for them. Interviewing characters can be exhausting, and getting them to stick to the plot?

Well, it doesn’t always work that way. And then you find out they’re talking about you behind your back…

Meet Randy and Sarah, the hero and heroine of FINDING SARAH and HIDDEN FIRE, in a funny and illuminating look at what goes on behind the scenes
of the romance writing process.

Terry Odell When Danger Calls Reviewed at Armchair Interviews.

When Danger Calls is a great read, especially for the adventurer with a romantic heart. The gauntlet of emotions will leave you breathless. I was hooked from the first and page, closing the book was not an option. A 5-star action-packed work of excellent fiction. ... Diane
