Terry Wylis

“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” – Amelia Earhart

The author of numerous successful romance and romantic suspense novels, and a winner of RWA’s Passionate Plume Award in 2011, Terry Wylis enjoys exploring the heart of a character, the depth of emotion that drives a person to exhilaration or despair, forming a bridge to the reader. Creating that depth is the first step to the fully-crafted works Terry loves to produce.

Terry strives to imbue her stories with kindness, allowing the reader to curl up with a cup of tea and escape the often harsh realities of the world. It may be one small act opening the door to a connection, or a character who adopts kindness as a lifestyle, but as Seneca taught, “Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.”

At the same time, Terry is always “winding the watch of [her] wit; by and by it will strike” (William Shakespeare, The Tempest). The quick quip and witty repartee are her favorite forms of dialogue, and often a story idea will blossom from a single one-liner randomly gifted by her brain.

In addition to her literary pursuits, Terry enjoys poetry, crocheting, reading, New Orleans, all things British, forensics, psychology, and world cultures, along with whatever field happens to strike her fancy at the moment.
