Home – Terry’s Place

Thanks for stopping by! This is my online home–Terry’s Place.

Check out my website to learn more about me and what I write. My goal is to share words with you through blogs and links in the trust you will continue to follow my writing.

There are some exciting things in store, such as the coming release of my first novel, Shevivor. I have been procrastinating on publishing as I consider options, but it has been edited and re-written…and it’s close to being done.

The Shevivor cover has been adapted from my original concept by Angela Collier. Angela graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay with a degree in graphic arts. Wait until you see the final art.

News Update: Shawano Area Writers were saddened to hear of a long-time member’s passing. Dolores Kalliebe passed on September 16th and charter member Marcie Leitzke recently passed. We will miss both of these wonderful writers.

As president of Shawano Area Writers since April 2018, I invite you to check out our writer’s group. If  you are a writer or aspire to be one, a writer’s group offers you motivation, incentive (or inspiration), camaraderie, and enthusiasm (or encouragement) — MICE.

Shawano Area Writers’ next meeting is Thursday, December 19th. Join us in one of the lower level meeting rooms at the Shawano City/County Public Library. Our meetings start at 10:00 a.m. and end at noon (or sooner). Feel free to stop by and see what we’re all about. You can even bring something of your own to read.

On the recommendation of my friend and fellow writer, John J. Mutter, Jr., I have joined the Wisconsin Writer’s Association. John and I attended WWA’s state convention in September 2018 where we met agents, publishers, and other authors.

I am also a member of the Green Bay Area Writer’s Guild which meets the 1st Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. in the lower level of the Brown County Central Library in downtown Green Bay. Join us January 7th, 2020! We start on time, so arrive early to do some networking. Check us out!

In my career I have put more than one million words on paper or hard drive, so stay tuned for more of my work.

Although I enjoy being out in nature and find water and woods more inspirational than concrete and steel. my true passion is writing!

Enjoy exploring…and reading!

Some say GBPD Officer Scott looks like NBA player Sam Dekker. Puffy jacket & puffy pants make puffy man look bigger.
