Terry Lynn Thomas grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, which explains her love of foggy beaches, windy dunes, and Gothic mysteries. When her husband promised to buy Terry a horse and the time to write if she moved to Mississippi with him, she jumped at the chance. Although she had written several novels and screenplays prior to 2006, after she relocated to the South she set out to write in earnest and has never looked back.

Now Terry Lynn writes the Sarah Bennett Mysteries, set on the California coast during the 1940s, which feature a misunderstood medium in love with a spy. Neptune’ Daughter is a recipient of the IndieBRAG Medallion.

Thanks for the question. It is a good one, and the answer is a resounding yes. I have had one person tell me that I should take a beginning composition class. She teaches at community college, and although she is a fabulous teacher, her comment was off base and cut to the core. I immediately called my agent, who talked me off the ledge. That is just one instance. The road to publication is rife with criticism, and I imagine once my debut is out, there will plenty of people who do not like it. I remain hopeful that I will find the readers who like my work. That is my ultimate goal. Criticism, or constructive feedback, is an absolute necessity for the writer. As a professional, you must be able to learn to take the feedback, and use it to hone your skills. The teacher (who obviously is not a fan of my writing) is still an acquaintance, and I've decided that her opinions about my ability to write are none of my business! Thanks for the question, Jason.

Here I am, answering your question five months late. Sigh. Anyway, the third book the Sarah Bennett Series, "Neptune's Daughter," is now available on Amazon! I'm also working on a new series that will release in 2018. As for Sarah, I am planning a series of novellas. I'll post about those here, so stay tuned. Thanks for reaching out. (less)
