Terry by Tyblackwhite2.

 

Welcome to the site of writer, Terry Farish.  I  live in a town you can approach on any of three bridges that cross the Piscataqua River.  The river has become a character to me along with the metal scrap piles and container ships and tugs in the harbor where the river enters the ocean. My wanderings before making this home-base led to creating the settings in my writing. I wrote THE GOOD BRAIDER, a novel that opens in Juba, South Sudan, after travel to the north of Kenya, and years of collecting oral histories among southern Sudanese families in Portland, Maine. In my forthcoming picture book THE ALLEYWAY a boy paints the story of his love for his soldier-brother on an alleyway mural.  Photo (c) Ty Paterson, Somersworth, NH
