Terry is a North Carolina native who enjoys vacations in the N.C. mountains as a respite from Columbia's summer heat. His hobbies include reading historical novels, weight lifting (integral to weight control), and writing poetry to family and friends. Though he writes books and articles for publications, his wife Dolly remains his primary claim to fame. His sons are John Mark (English major graduate from the College of Charleston), and Stephen (serving as a weightlifting coach in Columbia). Each year Terry volunteers his time and gifts for a couple of overseas mission trips, where he trains national leaders on practical aspects of ministry. He adores his dachshund, Farley, and plans to write a best-selling book entitled Farley and Me. He also watching "cops and robbers" T.V. programs and reading the comics pages (especially Garfield and The Far Side). He played on the baseball team for two colleges -- a left-handed pitcher -- but now finds baseball boring. Terry insists that he doesn't teach classes, courses, or lessons; instead, he teaches people.
