Terry Thomas is English by birth but has been a Kiwi since 1973. Retired now, he lives in The Far North with his wife, two grandchildren, a dog, five cats and a small but fearsome horse named Cody. He has been writing fiction for years, has won a few awards, and has stories published in several anthologies and magazines in New Zealand. He has stories on-line at The Fiction Warehouse, The Southern Ocean Review, Storyglossia, and upcoming in The Summerset Review. He is currently working on something lengthy, though he doesn’t yet know what it’s about, and a collection of short stories linked in some way to Ninety Mile Beach.
