About Me

Hi, my name is Terry Houchin. I live on the on the Gulf Coast of Texas with my husband of thirty-nine years and our two dogs, Miley and Shadow. I have two grown sons and a grandson.

I am a retired teacher.

I have always loved reading. When I retired I began writing a novel. I joined writing groups and reading groups. I found out that I could improve my writing by reading and figuring out plot points, character arcs, what I liked to read and what I didn’t like. I’ve been receiving ARC’s (Advanced Readers Copies) for books that are going to be released soon. I have been writing reviews and posting them on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. I thought as long as I am reading these books and posting reviews why not post the reviews where other people might be able to read them, on a blog post. So that is how this website came to be.

I will be reading and posting the reviews on this site. I hope you find something through these reviews that entice you to try a new author or a new genre. My favorite genre is historical fiction, but I like a good romance, or suspense too. I even read paranormal, young adult and humor or comedy also. So there will be a wide variety of books that will be reviewed on this site.

I will post from time to time about my writing journey and other topics, but the main focus of the site will be book reviews.

Thank you for dropping by the blog.
