About Me

Terri Wallace lives in Oklahoma with her husband, three children, menagerie of cats, and four chickens.  While working on the mythical Great American Novel, she is frequently distracted by ideas for short stories and cravings for vegan chocolate.

While Oklahoma may not be the deep South (more like the red-headed step-child of the South), Terri’s grandmother was a true southern belle whose quirky stories of the South obviously seeped into her granddaughter’s DNA and helped birth the Southern Gothic stories which she creates.

    • I live in Oklahoma, but I don’t think that I am what people think of when they conjure up an image of “Okie.” Instead, conjure up an eccentric cat-lover with ginger hair, who has an abundance of books (and yet never “enough”), with a burning love of all things Southern gothic, who is also a semi-closeted anglophile, loves to cook, hates heat/humidity/Oklahoma summers, with an interest in archeology, history, and documentaries and you’ll be a bit closer to the truth.


      • Yeah, I don’t know why that term has such a stereotype attached to it. (Actually, I do know why. I was born there, after all, and I grew up in Oklahoma-bashing Texas.) I’m certainly not what people think of when they think Okie, either — or Texan, or Louisianan (I’ve got Anglo-Cajun family, too). Which is probably why I feel so comfortable in Portland, OR. 🙂

        Great to meet you, and I’m looking forward to reading your fiction!


  1. One can never have too many books! Although as I get older, I find that having them in electronic form is easier for storage and adjusting to read with or without my glasses


  2. Just discovered your blog through a Facebook link Diana G posted. Looking forward to browsing the archives. And I hope you and hubs are safe and feeling better every day.
