Who the H* * * is Mark Terry?

March 20, 2007

When asked, which isn't all that often, I say that I am a freelance writer, editor and novelist. I make a living off the written word, although I didn't always--for 18 years I worked in genetics at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, a job for which I often think the less is said the better.
The fact is, I'm a writer first and editor and novelist comes afterwards. The majority of my income--at the moment--comes from freelance writing of one sort or another. I love this job and it is treating me very well at the moment.
To-date, I've had three books published and the fourth, THE SERPENT'S KISS, will be out from Midnight Ink/Llewellyn Worldwide on July 1, 2007. It, like THE DEVIL'S PITCHFORK, deal with Dr. Derek Stillwater, a troubleshooter for the Department of Homeland Security, ex-Army Special Forces, expert in biological and chemical warfare and terrorism. SERPENT is book 2 in a 4-book contract, though I hope to write about Derek for a very long time, as well as a number of other projects I've got cooking or my agent is currently marketing.
To find out more about me or my books, check out my website, www.markterrybooks.com or my other blog, www.markterrybooks.com/blog.html
When not writing I lift weights, bike, study Sanchin-Ryu karate, kayak, walk my dog, or hang out with my wife and kids. I hope you'll enjoy stopping by and see what those of us who blog here might have to say.

I like the book covers for the devils pitchfork and the serpent.

They are cool

Kevin Brown designed those. He's one of MI's cover designers and I think they're spectacular. I can't wait to see what he has in mind for book #3, ANGELS FALLING.
