Biographie :

Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri 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.

Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.

In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell 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 thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. 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.

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 as Touched 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.

Distortion de Terri Blackstock
The glances to the left alerted Michael. When right-handed people glanced to the left, it usually meant they were making the story up as they went along. They glanced to the right when they were remembering things that had actually happened.

Distortion de Terri Blackstock
During all that, she had been the one to remind her brother and sisters that God hadn’t changed. That Jesus was still faithful even when his people had forsaken them. That they couldn’t let their circumstances dictate their beliefs.

Distortion de Terri Blackstock
Caleb wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but he always did what Miller told him. As long as he kept him in dope, he was up for anything, usually with no questions asked.

If I Run de Terri Blackstock
You would think that Molly would be the name of someone light and fluffy. Molly sees only the dark side of the world, the part that shows on negative film. She misses all the good stuff.

Seaside de Terri Blackstock
They can send men to the moon. They can clone animals, for Pete's sake. Surely there's something that can be done about Mom's cancer.

True light de Terri Blackstock
But living in fear is no kind of life. We have to trust God. That doesn't mean bad things won't happen. But we know He's in charge.

Truth Stained Lies de Terri Blackstock
“Would Miller do this, knowing we’d love nothing more than to nail him for another crime?”

“I know it’s unlikely,” he said. “But sociopaths can’t be accused of logic.”

If I Run de Terri Blackstock
They have me marked as a victim of PTSD, and the force doesn't want to hire people who could snap. The CID had a problem with it, too, which is why I was discharged. It's the story of military life. They send you to places where bombs explode like jack-in-the-boxes, blowing your friends to pièces before your eyes. Then they punish you when you can't stop thinking about it.

The Heart Reader of Franklin High de Terri Blackstock
(…) Zeke, the Goth who’d fought with Grange, strode into the room. Jake heard a flurry of whispers and saw Grange turn around. Jake straightened and touched the kid’s shoulder, as if to protect him if this went bad. But Zeke’s eyes met Grange’s, and he stiffened like a cowboy staring down his enemy, as if deciding which one would leave town before sundown.

If I Run de Terri Blackstock
Taking my own life would be too selfish. (...) You can't just check out and think it will all will be over. It won't be over for anyone who loves you. You'll only leave them to run after the pieces that scatter in the angry wind. You'll leave them desperately trying to solve the problems you wouldn't... all while plugging their own wounds.
