Love, love, love romance, the paranormal, hunky Highlanders with their delicious brogue and hot kilts, so Terry Spear writes about those hunky Highlanders both in medieval times and as wolves in contemporary times. Jaguar shifters too! And young adult urban fantasy. And romantic suspense.

She grew up reading mystery, adventure, mythologies from around the world, ghost stories, the paranormal, fell in love with Dracula and Wolfman, and felt they needed loving too. Everyone should have someone to love. Which means her stories always have a HEA.

USA Today Bestseller residing in Central Texas from Sacramento, California who creates award-winning teddy bears too!

House in the Woods

I created this with an abandoned house and autumn woods I purchased from Shoot for the Moon, and added some other items, including the jack-o-lantern and lamp post which are my pictures.

“She turned off all the lights in the duplex and peered out the windows, moving from one room to the next to see if she could catch sight of the a black sedan. Security lights and streetlights in her complex cast a strange orange glow on the misty snow. It looked like the perfect night for a murder.”

Janice Silver Town needs a coffee/donut shop. I think if I was really a wolf shifter, I'd be a Beta, as I can be quite introverted, at times, and would rather avoid conflict. With wolves, I used to think that the Alphas were the Leaders; Betas, the Enforcers; and the Omegas, the Peacemakers in the Pack.

Janice He was a nice looking gentleman,maybe in his 60s-70s. It was rather funny how the other people reacted to his beautiful bagpipe music...I don't think they were able to appreciate the beauty of it , and I could easily reconize(?) each of the beautiful Christmas hymns.
