Split Personality!

To my favorite Mommy and Daddy bloggers and readers and to all my friends. In the attempt to get a life, I have finished my very first novel. I wrote about this some time ago, but since then there have been many drafts, sleepless nights, thoughts about who do I think I'm kidding.

The publishing industry is going through growing pains, but I think this opens up opportunities. I just have to find them.

Without sounding too cryptic, please visit you will come to understand my strange re-emergence. My father's death has given me a new life. Wow, that's weird. So much of what I am going through is wildly sinister and kinda' fun.

I want to have this forum to talk about my feelings, my children, my fear of separation...but then I have this other world to dable in. It is not as satisfying as talking to you each and every day.

What do I do?

I miss you all so much. I'm still here. And have to figure out a way to be two people at once.

Let me know your thoughts. And if you get a moment, stop by and say hey to my Dad who made horror films and died 33-years-ago.

All my love,
The Gal who is now being called half Goth and Half Gidget!


  1. I'm eager to hear about anything you're doing, from waxing eloquent about your kids getting older to your writing career.

    And, wow, is publishing changing. I just have to remember that things don't change because they're working so well, they change because the mechanism for delivering a product changes and because the existing system isn't working. Of course, that leave me in a kind of weird transitional state too, but you are inspirational, Terry!

    Keep writing!

  2. Congrats on the novel, Terry! That is no small accomplishment; I hope it finds a proper home!

  3. Congrats Terry! What a huge accomplishment. I am working on a novel and I am in awe of you for finishing. I will definitely check it out.

  4. Hi friend - Congratulations on all of your writing. I will be excited to follow you on your next adventure.

  5. Congratulations!! I hope it all works out and I'm looking forward to meeting you on your book tour ;-)

    I do miss your blog very much, but understand the pulling in different directions. I now just post whenever the urge hits me, and I feel that that works because I don't think of blogging as an "obligation." I hope you can do the same and pop in whenever the mood strikes you. I really love your writing and hope to hear more from you.

  6. I've been living a couple of lives as well, but stopping by to say hello, and on my way to visit your dad, well sort of anyway, who I so appreciate and admire. Namaste

  9. Thanks a lot for sharing this article, I am admired by its original content. I am sure that your novel will be published!
