LUMBERTON — A Robeson County-based author is featured on the cover of the current issue of Southern Writers Magazine.
P.M. Terrell, who has penned 18 novels and books spanning multiple genres, was profiled for the January/February issue of the bi-monthly publication.
In the article, she walks writer Susan Reichert through her creative process and offers plot details about her upcoming thriller, “The Pendulum Files,” which is set to be released in March. She also reveals what attracts her to writing suspense stories.
“I love immersing myself in the story; feeling the characters as if they are guests who have moved into my home, the plot as though it’s happening to me, and the adrenaline that comes with mounting suspense,” she said.
Terrell is the co-founder of the Book ‘Em Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes literacy throughout the Southeast. On Feb. 22, the Third Annual Book ‘Em North Carolina event will take place at Robeson Community College. More than 75 authors, publishers and literary agents are expected to attend the event, according to a statement on Terrell’s website.
Her novel “River Passage” won the Best Book award from Bengal Book Reviews in 2010, while her novel “Vicki’s Key” was selected as a finalist for both the 2012 International Book Awards and the 2012 USA Best Book Awards.
Terrell writes a regular column for The Robesonian, which appears on the third Sunday of each month.
