Terry grew up in the Midlands. After studying Engineering at London University he began a career in retailing before emigrating to South Africa where he moved into the oil industry. After a few years he joined the IT business in a sales capacity and then moved back to the UK.
Terry is fascinated by stories of personal triumph or tragedy in a world largely controlled by government and big business. Winners imply they make their own success or ‘the harder they work, the more successful they are’ but Terry believes luck and fate play an equal part in people’s lives. He weaves all these ingredients into his thrillers.
Terry lives and writes in the Mendip Hills in Somerset. He is a keen sportsman, sails a catamaran, is a qualified scuba diver, plays golf, enjoys squash and tennis and watches all types of sport.
