Welcome to the site of writer, Terry Farish.

Either the Beginning or the End of the WorldNEWS!  My forthcoming novel comes out in October with Carolrhoda Lab.

“Seventeen-year old Sophea, daughter of an American father and a Cambodian mother, is drawn into her Cambodian heritage and experience of war when she falls in love with a soldier returned from Afghanistan.” The story is set on the New Hampshire Seacoast.

I’m here with students at Hardy Middle School in Washington D.C. An Open Book Foundation invited me to speak about THE GOOD BRAIDER to eighth grade classes. This remarkable foundation presented each student with a copy of the book.
