Terri Blackstock spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual "new kid," her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since. In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her murder mysteries, offering hope instead of despair. The prevailing themes of her novels is that the crisis is sometimes the blessing, and that all of life is a test. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they're not alone, and that their trials have a purpose. Her book INTERVENTION was a New York Times best-seller. it was inspired by her own personal struggles with a daughter on drugs. In the book, a mother hires an interventionist for her drug-addicted daughter. But on the way to treatment, the interventionist is murdered, and the daughter disappears. Barbara, the mother, sets out to search for her daughter. Terri modeled Barbara after herself, and poured many of her own emotions and experiences into that character. She hopes families experiencing drug addiction will find comfort and guidance in this murder mystery. Other recent books include PREDATOR, about an killer who stalks his victims through social networking sites, and a stand-alone novel called DOUBLE MINDS. She is also known for her popular Restoration Series, Newpointe 911 Series, Cape Refuge Series and SunCoast Chronicles Series. Terri has appeared on national television programs such as "The 700 Club" and "Home Life," and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such asTouched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.Read more Read less
