welcome to the dark side...

I'm Teri Terry, and this is my website.


I write books - they might scare you. Some of my characters go to dark places and they don't always come back. If they do, they may never be the same again.


My books are thrillers - some futuristic, some current - with a keen eye on characters and what makes them tick, a good splash of weird science and occasional flights of fantasy.


Below you can click on each book cover to learn more, or read my blog.


You can find out about my virtual events here. My books are available at all good bookshops and online sellers - a list of some of the them with links is to the right. Signed and personalised books are available here.


Thank you for stopping by!

Slated's Tenth Birthday !!

I find it so hard to believe, but it's true: Slated was first published in the UK on 3rd May, 2012!


Ten years later, twelve books published in the UK and around the world, and a thirteenth on the way in July... wow. That's a lot of words. 


Some reflecting on the past, the present and future seems in order!


And ... a GIVEAWAY!!! You could win one of two signed copies of Slated.

Interview & giveaway details

Red Sky Burning: Trailer

out on 8th July 2021 in the UK!


Win an event for your school!

Attention, teachers & librarians! And readers - bring this to the attention of your teacher or librarian!


To celebrate the publication of Red Sky Burning in the UK on 8th July, I'm giving away three virtual Q&A events in the UK! Enter via email to education@hachettechildrens.co.uk; everyone who enters will be sent posters & bookmarks!

All details are here in this video. Please share widely, thank you! 


Look out Germany, here I come!


Well what I meant is not so much me, but my new book! Which is hard to fit in a title. Not sure when we'll all be travelling again, but in the meantime, we can travel by reading: pretty much risk-free, apart from the small possibility of paper cuts.


I'm sorry it's taken so long to get to you! Many reasons are likely involved - including me switching imprints in the UK, cancelled book fairs, covid (everything is blamed on covid these days, right?). But it will be with you, very soon.


I hope it was worth the wait.


Do you like the cover? I think it's gorgeous! And goes nicely with the UK edition, too. Once I have a copy in my hands I'll take a selfie with both.


Bye for now ... keep reading & stay safe.




Red Sky Burning: we got it covered!


Something exciting this way comes ... !!!
