Hi, I’m Terry.

Personally: My husband and I live in Los Angeles and we’ve both lived in California all our lives. The only way I can summarize my personal life succinctly is to tell you that we stopped being two separate people decades ago. Our natural and usual state is happy, upbeat, and quiet.

Professionally: I write full-time and have for the last several years. My non-fiction, under a different name to dispel confusion, has been published by Simon & Schuster and Penguin and my articles have appeared in the NY Times and Cosmopolitan, among others. I have a Ph.D. in archaeology but a B.S. in physics.

Sardonically: Writing about yourself in the third person would be a great way to create an exemplary bio, but that’s not why I’m here. Alt

From the…moreI came across shamanism in archaeological contexts, trying to understand how Native California religion changed as a result of the missions. From the moment I learned about indigenous healers traveling in a spiritual realm, I knew I'd write a novel about it. It was just too fascinating and fun. The possibilities for fantasy story-telling in that world are boundless!

I was also keen to keep the books YA-friendly. Because traditional shamanism was often practiced with the use of hallucinogens, I didn't want to seem like I was advocating them. So, instead I turned to something I felt comfortable with--technology. I dreamed up 3D goggles that could induce the ecstatic and out-of-body state that shamans experienced.

Finally though, I wanted a heroine who wasn't your typical dagger-wielding badass (not that dagger-wielding badass chicks aren't awesome). Instead I wanted someone whose heroism was fueled by compassion. The idea for a modern-day healer--battling insurmountable odds and fighting to protect the people that she loves--came together in a flash. I was incredibly excited to write it!

I guess I'm still excited. :) Thanks for the question!(less)
