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 back in Plymouth, and works in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business at Plymouth University
Bad Blood. Book 3 in the Clifford-Mackenzie crime series: (R.D. Nixon) (Hobeck)
The Secrets of Pencarrack Moor. Book 1 in the Pencarrack series: (Terri Nixon) (Piatkus)
Currently Working On: Terri is currently in the thick of the second Pencarrack book, which has a working title of Footsteps Through The Mist. It will tell the story of a woman who, a year after the death of her brother in a flight training accident, hears something that convinces her that the crash was caused deliberately. Her search for the truth will lead her and those she loves into grave danger. The book also features a small, independent china clay operation where the workers are fighting for the right to form a union - the two storylines will merge in what could be an explosive finish...
She will also shortly be re-commencing work with author Shelley Clarke (collaborating as Clarke Nixon) as Shelley continues her stunning story of The Children of Sinai in book three of the series.
Future Plans: Terri intends to give her self-published series, The Lynher Mill Chronicles, a polish and re-edit over the coming months, and re-release them with new artwork. She says of the series: "I wrote these books at the start of my writing career, and was in a fever to release them as they are truly the books of my heart. The publication - at a very low price - was largely an experiment, and a way of sharing the stories I have loved for so long with friends and family, however, they have found some very loyal and devoted fans, and I have learned so much more about the publishing process since The Dust of Ancients was released in 2013. I think the books - and their readers - deserve better. I will administer some TLC, and plan to re-launch them later this year or early in 2024."

There are plans to write a standalone psychological thriller set in the University of Plymouth, and Terri is currently in talks with the legal dept and business manager about the implications of using her experiences within the faculty, and the permissions necessary to publish. She might have to invent an academic establishment to get around any potential issues, but she is hoping that won't be necessary. More information will follow.
A Word from the Author re: The Oaklands Manor Trilogy:
"I have had the rights to two of my books reverted to me by HarperCollins, so they will not show as being on sale for a little while. These are books 2 and 3 in The Oaklands Manor Trilogy:
Evie's Choice (formerly known as A Rose in Flanders Fields) and
Kitty's War (formerly known as Daughter of Dark River Farm.)
The large print and audio versions of these books are still available, and under their original titles, as they are published elsewhere.
I hope this is the first step in giving these two books (which I love) the attention and visibility I feel they deserve." Terri Nixon.
