Terrie Reed has been a member of the Writers’ League since August. She lives in Midland, Texas.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Terrie Reed: Realistic Fiction.
Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
TR: John Grisham and coffee.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
TR: Hawaii by James Michener.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
TR: That I do not know what I do not know and I hope to learn that which I do not know that I do not know. In other words, I need enlightenment in the writing process.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
TR: I would like to publish my novel of course. Outside of that goal, I would find delight in the process of putting my experiences and interests in writing just for the sake of writing it all down. Hoping, some day, someone else might find my experiences and interests thought-provoking.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
TR: I am a retired Chemistry/Math teacher. I have taken the opportunity to write for pleasure since my retirement from public education. I spent over 30 years studying and teaching about things that were very conforming and structured. Now I am learning to enjoy the lack of so much structure in my life. The freedom to be able to write about things that intrigue me is quite enjoyable.
