Shelley D Terrell lives in Eastern Oklahoma with her husband Ron, her fourteen-year-old son Damien, their German Shepherd, Piper, and their Jack Russell Terrier, Boone. As a survivor of domestic violence, a former foster parent and a child advocate, Shelley personally understands the subject matter she writes about. Her experiences bring reality to her real life fiction novels and awareness to the out of control social problems of drug abuse, alcoholism, domestic violence, and child abuse. Because of her love for animals, she also has a wildlife rescue. Bat pups, vultures, squirrels, rabbits and deer are some of her most recent rescues. All animals are returned to the wild after they are successfully rehabilitated.

Luckily, I don't have to deal with it very often, but when I do, I try to force myself to write anyway; even if only for thirty minutes or so. If that doesn't work, I take a break. Usually, when I start a manuscript, I only have a basic idea in my head. I don't use outlines or anything else, and I never know where the story is going to go or how it's going to end; I just start writing. I find that the story will take on a life of it's own, and take twists and turns that even I don't expect. Because of that, if I can just get through the first chapter, the rest of the book kind of writes itself.(less)

I honestly get as involved in a book I am writing as I do a book I am reading. Since I don't use outlines and don't plan my manuscripts, I am just as surprised as everyone else about where the story goes. That keeps me entertained.(less)
