Q & A with Terrance
Here are some other questions I’m often asked.
What do I like to read?
These are the last five books I’ve read:
- Summer Rental (Mary Kay Andrews)
- Ten Beach Road (Wendy Wax)
- Burnt Mountain (Anne Rivers Siddons)
- Great Southern Mysteries (E. Randall Floyd)
- Oolong Dead (Laura Childs)
What is my favorite ghost tale?
I could never narrow it down to just one!
What was my scariest experience?
Being locked inside Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (WV) all night!
Who was my favorite pirate?
Anne Bonny, of course, because I can totally picture myself as this tough, sexy, fearless pirate!
How did I get interested in lighthouses?
A friend took me to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. We climbed all the way to the top! I had never been inside a lighthouse before but after that I was hooked.
Where is my favorite travel destination?
Africa. While I treasure all my globe-trotting experiences, I absolutely love East and Southern Africa. You will too, I promise, once you have seen a hippo coming out of the Zambezi at sunset, hot-air ballooned over the Northern Serengetti, enjoyed a cold drink at sunset while looking out over the Mari, or participated in a night game drive at Samburu. Our jeep was chased by a mother elephant who thought we got too close to her herd. Now that’s an experience you don’t forget!
What is my favorite place in the Carolinas?
I have so many places I love throughout the Carolinas, so this is a tough one. Seriously! We are blessed to have so many great cities and towns. And it really does depend on what you’re looking for: mountains, beach, nature, nightlife, etc. I have property on the Albemarle Sound (which is the largest body of freshwater in the world) and that area remains largely unspoiled by development (for now). It is a writer’s haven!
What am I working on right now?
Big surprise! I’ll be making an announcement soon…
