2014 ULTIMATE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE!!
Today I have another author who has graciously offered a giveaway of two copies of her newest book, Danger at the Border. This is a suspense novel and I have to tell you, she is one of the queens of the Love Inspired Suspense line!! Super great mysteries, romance that often sizzles and characters that make you alternate between loving and hating them:) But really, her books are just that good. And she sent me two copies of her new one to give away to two of my readers. Check it out, after you read her interview. I don't know about you, but I always enjoy finding out more about the authors I love.
Thank you for being with us today, Terri!
How long have you known you wanted to be an author?
I can remember saying I wanted to be a writer as early as seventh grade. Though I had no idea what it really meant to be an author until I sold. Not only must you write the book but you must be a business person as well.
Can you tell me a little bit about your newest book?
I have two recent releases. The first from Love Inspired Suspense, Danger at the Border, is set in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and is the first book in the Northern Border Patrol series. In this book fish biologist Dr. Tessa Cleary along with Border Patrol Agent Jeff Steele must discover the source of a toxin that has contaminated a lake that crosses the international boundary line before any more people are harmed. What they find in the forest, could do them both in.
The second release is a sweet contemporary romance from Tule Publishing Group, Home for Good, is set in the fictional town of Marietta Montana. It’s a book about coming home and following your dreams.
When a reader gets done with your book, what do you want them to come away with?
For both my Love Inspired books and the Tule book I hope readers enjoys the stories. Because of the faith element in my Love Inspired books, I hope readers will glimpse the character of God and their hearts will be touched.
Since we are nearing the holidays, what are 3 things you are most thankful for this year?
I’m thankful for a really good physical therapist who has helped me tremendously with some physical issues. I’m thankful for my family who are supportive and loving. I’m thankful for readers who write to me. I enjoy hearing from those who love reading as much as I do.
What is your favorite holiday(Thanksgiving or Christmas) tradition?
I enjoy going to Christmas Eve candlelight services. It’s a time of reflection on the true meaning of Christmas which can get lost in the hustle and bustle of gift giving, holiday parties and family gatherings.
And what is one food that has to be on the table for Thanksgiving?
Sweet Potato Pie.
Do you have a favorite hobby?
Does exercise count? I enjoy dancing any time, any where.
Is there something about you most people wouldn't know?
I loathe snakes. My kids think it is funny when we go on hikes in the forest and we hear rustling in the bushes or, worse yet, actually see a snake. I scream and practically climb the nearest tree.
Any last thoughts for your readers?
If you’re online, connect with your favorite authors on social media. We love to get to know our readers. And one way to help your favorite authors is to do reviews. Reviews have become the word of mouth for the Internet.
And how can they connect with you?

THE BOOK BEING GIVEN AWAY, DANGER AT THE BORDER
WHO ARE THESE FOR?Personally I think these would be good for females, AND males. When you have suspense mixed with romance, you can't go wrong. But I know some guys may not like the romance aspect. So maybe I will suggest them mainly for the ladies.
