"Great Authors have many qualities and yet each one has something unique about them. Something that causes them to stand out. My favorite kind of Author is the one that has a little piece of them in the character. A piece of them in the story. Terah Marie is one of those great Authors. It's her willingness to share a part of herself that makes her characters so relatable. Each page and every chapter is crafted in a way that gives the reader the ultimate experience. If not she won't put it out. She let us know what motivated her."
Jason: "What motivated you to write "Encompassing Darkness"
"I have been a stay at home mom for 11 years, and volunteer at a local charity group. In that time I have owned my own dress store for a few years, made and sold feather earrings to stores all over Alberta, and tried my hand at the arts by making and selling paintings. I was looking for my next endeavor, I wanted to see what I was capable of and if I could accomplish something like writing a book. At first, I just wanted to write a story, it turned into a cathartic self realization for me. Though the story and characters are fictional, there is some truth to the story. Stories that I collected from my memory, my daughter and my sister. The relief of just having it out there was like a weight lifting off my shoulders. It is also very scary to have my most inner thoughts being out there for the world to read."
Jason: "What characteristic of Cali Stenson can you relate to the most and why?"
"Oh, Cali and I are quite a lot a like. I think that she is a little sarcastic, has attitude and is trying to find out where she fits into this great big world. That is something I can relate too."
Jason: "For your fans and book lovers briefly describe "Encompassing Darkness"."
"Encompassing Darkness is about a young woman who moves from Toronto to B.C. Trying to escape the paranormal activity in her life and to try and make a life of her own. Moving across country doesn’t quite work. The other worldly activity continues, and her pursuit for a career is a little messy. She isn’t alone in all this, she meets co-workers that become great friends and there may even be a love interest on the horizon. This book crosses genres such as fiction, romance, mystery, suspense and paranormal."
Jason: " Is there another book you're working on and if so what can you tell us about it?"
"There is a book that I have started working on, but with Encompassing Darkness just being released October 2018, the new book has taken a back seat to book signings and marketing. I am hoping to continue on this next book this spring. It is a stand alone fictional book, that has many twists and turns. The book is about a young girl who is about to find out she is not who she thinks she is, and finds herself trapped in a situation she may not be able to get out of."
Jason: " For those that want to read your book what is the easiest way for them to buy "Encompassing Darkness"?"
"I have made sure my book is available in all formats. Paper back, hard cover or E-book. Book lovers and readers can go to their favorite E-book sites, order it at places like Amazon and E-bay. Local stores also carry it or can order it in if it is not on their shelf. I have sold books in Britain and through North America, just ask your local store for a copy! Readers can also check out https://t.co/dqy176dDAd for a few of the links to stores that will carry the book."
" So looking for her next endeavor motivated Terah Marie to write a book. She wanted to see what she was capable of. All of her different accomplishments before her career as a successful Author shows her ability to take initiative and be creative. What I admire most about Terah Marie is no matter how scary it was to have her inner thoughts out there for the world to read she did it anyway! Instead of watering down her story she chose to share her thoughts, imagination, and creativity giving the Reader a complete experience not just a safe one. She chose to share and not to hold back. That is why her books stand out. Go to www.authorterahmarie.com and buy "Encompassing Darkness"."
