About The Author

TN Head Shot.jpg

Terri Nixon is an author of historical fiction, family sagas, and mythic fiction

R.D. Nixon is the side of her that argues a lot, and writes crime / thrillers

She was born in Plymouth. At the age of 9 she moved with her family to Cornwall, to a small village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, where she discovered a love of writing that has stayed with her ever since. She also discovered apple-scrumping, and how to jump out of a hayloft without breaking any bones, but no-one's ever offered to pay her for doing those. 

She now lives in Plymouth, and works in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business at Plymouth University, where she is constantly baffled by the number of students who don't possess pens. 





FAIR GAME, by R.D. Nixon will be published on 8 March 2022, with Hobeck Books



Terri has signed a deal with Piatkus, publishers of her previous family sagas, to write three books, with at least one of them featuring some of the characters first met in the Fox Bay Saga.

This series will merge the Penhaligon series with Fox Bay, in a brand new adventure based on a developing area of moorland above Caernoweth. Polgarrick is a village which has sprung up, in post-war years, from the run-down row of miners’ and quarrymen’s cottages known in The Penhaligon Saga as Furzy Row.

Characters from both series (as well as links to moorland village Lynher Mill) will be featured, as well as a whole cast of new ones. Book one, working title: Tyndall's Folly, is scheduled for release in December 2022.
