Home – Terry’s Place

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

Do some exploring if you’d like to learn more about me and what I write. My goal is to share words with you and trust you will continue to follow my writing…maybe buy my books some day.

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

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: It’s winter in Wisconsin. There’s not much snow on the ground but that’s rare. The football playoffs are in full swing and our Wisconsin team is two wins away from bringing home the Lombardi trophy.

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, February 20th. Yes, 2020 is here! A new decade. 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 (at 11 on Feb. 20). Feel free to stop by and see what we’re all about. You can even bring something of your own to read.

Shawano Area Writers also sponsors the George Putz Jr. Memorial Student Writing Contest for budding writers in Shawano and Menominee counties. Go to the Shawano Area Writers website (see link above) for details. The 2020 awards ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, May 17th at the Mielke Arts Center in Shawano. John Gillespie of Rawhide Boys Ranch will deliver the keynote address.

On the recommendation of my friend and fellow writer, John J. Mutter, Jr., I 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 Board Room on the 2nd floor of the Brown County Central Library in downtown Green Bay. Join us February 4th, 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.

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!
