Teri Terry

Teri Terry has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England at more addresses than she can count, acquiring four degrees, a selection of passports and an unusual name along the way.

Past careers have included scientist, lawyer, optometrist and, in England, various jobs in schools, libraries and an audiobook charity.

The footpaths and canal ways of the Buckinghamshire Chilterns where she now lives inspired much of the setting of her Slated trilogy. Teri is also the author of Mind Games and Book of Lies, and her most recent work is the Dark Matter trilogy.
