Recent Reviews:

A lively, affectionate autobiography with messages of inspiration and
acceptance. - Kirkus Review

Scott Terry’s stirring memoir about a boy growing up in the American
West illustrates the maiming pain that families can inflict on their
members, especially the young and powerless, and the many ways
that orthodox religion can isolate and warp its believers. It’s also an
inspiring depiction of human endurance and the heart-healing balms
of generosity and kindness.

A few years ago, I wrote for the
San Francisco Chronicle.  The
very first piece I wrote for them
was an excerpt from my yet-to-be
published memoir.  The
publication of that very first book
excerpt is what launched my
writing career.
