ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Terry Farricker, an up and coming very talented UK Author, has lots to offer our readers partial to literature set in the supernatural realm.
As in Terry’s own words during an interview, he was born on the outskirts of Manchester in the UK in 1965. As he came into the world mankind was again showing the heights to which our worldly progress and development can aspire as Soviet cosmonaut Aleksei Leonov became the first man to walk in space, and the depths to which it all too often falls, as the first combat troops arrived in Vietnam.
The Author was educated in an ordinary secondary school and was a spectacularly average student. His only real ability seeming to lie in his propensity towards writing. So he thus began to write. He remembers thinking from an early age, what a wonderful thing it would be to compose a story using nothing more than a pen, a sheet of paper and his imagination, and then have someone read it and actually be affected by it.
That maxim still holds true for Terry today, and is the single most motivating factor in his life. This motivation and determination was reinforced by reading a quote from Alan Alda, Be brave enough to live creatively. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can only get there by hard work, by risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful: Yourself
So, ludicrously, the Author relates, he began work in the financial sector. He still functions in that field today; although each day he finds himself drifting between the mundane reality of his profession, but in the hope that, one day he will count himself among the celebrities literary achiever as a full time author; and one who can actually boast procuring a living from purely just writing his books.
The greatest achievement in the Author’s life is being a father to his cherished son. and maintains that his child is his inspiration; his consolation through disenchantment, the antidote to disillusionment and the reason he is still able to smile at disappointment.
He awoke on his forty-fifth birthday with the idea for a book. The premise was given him during a dream he explained, by one of the protagonists in the story and almost related to the Author page by page. He sat at his PC the next morning and mused, I’m not a writer! I can’t write a book! Some measure self doubt that crept in and so often assails many new authors when embarking on a writing career. Nevertheless, not swayed by that momentary twinge of self doubt, Terry started writing regardless. And the strange thing is, each time he finished another segment he simply closed his eyes and found himself sat in a cinema, watching the next section of his book unfolding before his mind’s eye.
Four years and four books later the Author is still sat in that cinema watching his stories unfold, and told us that as yet, he has nothing to show for this adventure. But curiously, he feels still now that does not seem to be the point. The point appears to be, as Mr Alda said, being brave enough to live creatively, leaving that city of your comfort, going into the wilderness of your intuition, risking not quite knowing what you are doing and, ultimately, discovering that something wonderful, yourself.
We are thankful that Terry Farricker revealed himself, and came out of his hiding place. His first book “SPAWN OF MAN” – Rebirth, in the Series of 2 more sequels planned (Book 2 now completed) and waiting to go into print in the not so distant future as a publishing contract was secured for him recently.
We are proud to count Terry Farricker as one among our numerous clientele. We believe that Terry’s books may well present as suitable film material, the representation of which we will be discussing with the Author once the complete series of “Spawn of Man” books are published and for readers to enjoy.
