Terri Bruce has been making up stories for as long as she can remember. Like Anne Shirley, she prefers to make people cry rather than laugh, but is happy if she can do either. She is the author of the paranormal/contemporary fantasy Afterlife series, which includes Hereafter (Afterlife #1), Thereafter (Afterlife #2), and Whereafter (Afterlife #3) [Whenafter (Afterlife #4) is forthcoming in 2018] and several science fiction and fantasy short stories, including "Welcome to OASIS" (Dear Robot anthology, November 2015), “The Tower” (Nonbinary Review Issue #6 “The 1001 Arabian Nights,” Zoetic Press, November 2015) and "The Well" (It's Come to Our Attention anthology, Third Flatiron Press, February 2016).
