Terry’s Online Place

My daughter was excited to receive her copy of my 1st novel.

It’s here!

Shevivor is now available on Amazon and from this website for autographed copies!

Comments on this fabulous cover by Angela Collier have been superb. Angela was a graphic arts student at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay when she agreed to tackle this project.

Shevivor is my first novel, so I hope you enjoy reading about Janet Murphy and her family-oriented exploits. It is a complex story covering a myriad of incidents and events. She is a successful advertising sales executive; that part of the story offers valuable insight into marketing strategies.

Work has begun on a sequel, tentatively titled Shevivor…Again. One reader commented that Shevivor left them hungry for more. Another asked when the next book was coming out. Working on it and about half completed!

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.

News Update:  Please pray for the eradication of the pandemic creating ghost towns across America! Add to your prayer list the end of violence in our cities so we can begin open and honest communication to resolve what divides us as Americans.

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 tentatively Thursday, September 15th. In August we gathered at Huckleberry Harbor in Shawano under the pavilion, sitting at picnic tables. It proved to be a good meeting, so if the library in Shawano is not open to host meetings, our meeting will once again be at Huckleberry Harbor, weather permitting.

If the library is open by chance, you can 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. 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 scheduled for Sunday, May 17th was cancelled! Winning writers were notified by mail and received their certificates and prize money with a copy of the program announcing them.

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 September 1st, 2020 for a virtual meeting via Zoom! The link is available on the Guild’s website (use link above). If the library is open and allows meetings, we will meet there. 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!
