Name: Tiffany Nicole Terry
Please introduce yourself (250 words or so):
I am a mother of two girls and a new stepmother to two additional girls. I am a new wife and am learning to share again after many years of being single. I spent my career in corporate America writing for executives, and I finally made time to write and publish three children’s books and three young adult fantasy books.
Tell us about your book(s) – title, genre etc (short)
My young adult fantasy trilogy Sister Worlds is available now. Kingdom of Men, Kingdom of Machines, and Kingdom of Monsters.
When did you start your writing adventure? What was the inspiration for it?
I had the idea in high school, fantasizing about a boy who moved away. I wrote the first draft in college, where my professor told me not to kill him in the end. Years later I married the boy who had inspired my story, and the daughters we had together ended up looking like and acting like the two girl characters in my first book. After my divorce, I took the time to heal and wrote my trilogy as part of that process.
What writing plans do you have for the future?
I want to write about girls discovering the magic within, and using that magic to save others. I have started on a new urban fantasy series.
What do you like to read?
I have actually read a lot of non-fiction over the years. Parenting books, books about being a new stepparent, relationship books, and spiritual guidance books.
What piece of advice do you wish you’d had when you’d started your writing adventure?
I just wish I would have known about self-publishing earlier, when I was younger, instead of years of rejection through traditional publishing.
