Another book is published!
January 2016

This book will soon be available at, as a kindle version.

It is currently available as a paperback, for the price of $6.00, through here is the link to purchase this title.

It is a compilation of posts I'd written during the month of April, 2012 in response to a health activist challenge. 

I'm happy to share these thoughts with my friends and family.

Watch for it at my Amazon author page 

Update August 4, 2014

     I just finished reading your book, Multiple Sclerosis, an Enigma, and found it to be an excellent means to begin to understand the disease and the processes that are involved both for the diagnosis and "treatment". I truly appreciate the openness and honesty with which you provide such a difficult and personal experience. It has helped me understand the hesitation and what I viewed as unusual, reactions to doctors, treatments and testing I have encountered with the other person I know that has MS. 
I admire your determination and perseverance in dealing with all you have experienced. You and Rick are blessed to have each other. Thank you and best to you both, Diana G. 

Thank you, Diane, for your kind words and for sending this review to me. We are blessed, and appreciate meeting new friends like you! ~ Terry and Rick

Update April 4, 2014

Tonight a panel of poets will be reading and sharing their work at the Buttonwoods Museum in Haverhill, Massachusetts, in honor of April's distinction as National Poetry Month. I am happy to join the poets of the New England Author Expo at this event, and look forward to seeing you there!

Same Day, Part Two:
Our local cable television station has made the video of my presentation of The Quilter's Quarters available on YouTube at this link: You will find Helen and Henry and some of the story at minute 20:30. 

Update March 3, 2014

Helen and Henry were discovered at the Boston Christmas Festival shortly after I had begun writing their story in my first mystery fiction.  When I saw them on display, I knew they were my characters.  We later arranged with their creator to bring them home to live in our new quilt shop.  
You can read more of their 'adoption' at my other blog: And of course, you can meet them formally in the shop, or by reading the first of the mystery series, The Quilter's Quarters

Update: February 8, 2014

I will be at the Georgetown Peabody Library on Wednesday evening, February 26th, sharing my two most recent books: Multiple Melanoma and More, and The Quilter's Quarters

Some of you know me as a teacher, some as a quilter, and some as an author. I have published eight books to date, and am working on the ninth. Each of my books is available at my webstore at reasonable prices. I'll autograph and inscribe it to whomever you wish when you buy a copy there. Most of them all also available as e-books through Amazon and Barnes and Noble, Smashwords and other on-line sellers. 

 My current writing is focused on producing a series of quilt shop mystery stories. The first is titled The Quilter's Quarters, and introduces Helen and Henry as the main characters of the series.  Helen and Henry are a life-long married couple now in their early eighties. The meet the challenges that age  presents with strength drawn from their loving relationship, and learn from each other how best to overcome the difficulties posed by this new millennium. The paperback version of this book includes a full color annotated album of thirty quilts that will, in due time, make appearances in the ongoing series of stories that follow book one. 

Book two is underway and will optimistically be published by the end of November, 2014.  Here's a brief intro:  Second in the series of Mysteries in The Quilter's Quarters, Henry and Helen continue to experience puzzling happenings in their shop, and health/safety challenges in their lives.

My earlier books range from poetry to small town stories, to essays about teaching and to a memoir and sequel focused on Multiple Sclerosis, Melanoma and other health challenges I have experienced. You can preview a portion of each of them at by accessing my author page and scrolling down to select any of my book pages. I welcome reviews and will respond to them.
