Member Since
December 2011


Teri has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England at more addresses than she can count, acquiring three degrees, a selection of passports and a silly name along the way. Past careers have included scientist, lawyer, optometrist, and, in England, various jobs in schools, libraries and an audiobook charity. The footpaths and canal ways of the Buckinghamshire Chilterns where she now lives inspired much of the setting of Slated. She hates broccoli, likes cats, and has finally worked out what she wants to do when she grows up.

My first CrimeFest was fab!

It was a CrimeFest miracle! Copies of Scare Me not out until 22nd June made their way to Bristol last weekend.

I had an amazing, inspiring weekend and have already booked to go back next year.

The first photo below is from the Thrilling the Next Generation panel, with authors Caroline Green, Nicki Thornton, Elly Griffiths, and Tracy Darnton. The others are amazing writing friends both oldand new.

“Is it possible for home to be a person and not a place?”
Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“Make up a story... For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light. Don't tell us what to believe, what to fear. Show us belief's wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear's caul.”
Toni Morrison, The Nobel Lecture In Literature, 1993

“My mouth goes dry. No factions? A world in which no one knows who they are or where they fit? I can't even fathom it. I imagine only chaos and isolation.'
Tris p. 110”
Veronica Roth, Insurgent
