It has been a while since I posted anything here.

Though, you may have noticed the change of scenery to the header - if you have time, head over to my brand new website to see new and fun information. Hope you like it!

The reason for my long silence - my life was somewhat upended in February when I returned from a workshop at the Writing Barn in Austin Texas. I was bitten by an unknown insect (along with several other workshop attendees) and became gravely ill. To be honest, I've been struggling in silence with this for almost three months. It's scary news to post about, mostly because I'm a joyful person - and I like to talk about happy things here.

So far, my test results have come back positive for Lyme Disease and Bartonella. But I'm on treatment right now, and I'm hopeful to make a recovery soon.



I've just realized it's less than two months away from the start of release season for me!


I have a shiny ARC to send to a lucky winner randomly selected from comments. I'm also giving one away on my Facebook page.

Also up for grabs is as an ARC of 

FALCON WILD releasing September 19. 

I'm thrilled to tell you this title is a JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION for fall 2017! 

Let me know in comments which ARC you'd like, and how to get hold of you if your name is drawn!

Lyme disease? I'm sorry. Glad they caught it quickly.
Those two dates are fast approaching!

Sorry that you have been so sick, Terry. It's hard dealing with the health issues and worry about them when you're suffering with a longer term illness. Hope you make a full recovery.

OMG Terry, that insect bite sounds horrible, did you bite it back :) Hope it is not overly serious, but judging from your post it seems it is :(

So proud of you for keeping true to the nature and teaching kids to respect it in your new books as well! Falcon Wild seems to have the same beautiful spirit as your lovely Ice Dogs did!

I'm so sorry you are battling Lyme disease.

Your upcoming books sound wonderful.

Congratulations! I'd like both! Guess that's not allowed? :-)

Really hope the treatment clears everything up soon!
