Yup--the picture kind of says all you need to know about the personal side of who I am. Professionally, I am an author, and a fantasy editor with Hadley Rille Books since January 2011.

My critically acclaimed debut novel, Finder, was published in November 2010 by Hadley Rille Books. What? You don't think it was critically acclaimed? Well here's my proof:

"...DeFino’s first novel creates an exotic desert environment as a backdrop to the story of a young man’s coming-of-age and a young woman’s search for the only family she has left. VERDICT Compelling characters and a fascinating world background make this a good addition to most fantasy collections." ~Library Journal

And if you'd like to read a sample chapter of Finder <--there you go.

Feel free to wander about, see what's up. If you get bored here, head on over to the blog sisters-in-Hadley Rille Books and I put up, Heroines of Fantasy  where we have all sorts of interesting guests.

Newly released (May 2012) A Time Never Lived 

Publishers' Weekly says: A Time Never Lived Terri-Lynne DeFino Hadley Rille (Ingram, dist.), $28 (358p) ISBN 978-0-98496-702-5 This gripping sequel to 2010's Finder brings family drama and magical legend to life. When the psychic Finder Ethen and his beloved Zihariel disappear during their search for the lost Spice Way across the Iabba Desert, the focus shifts to Ethen's son, Victorio, whose Finding talent appears to have failed, and whose relationship with the mercurial Cesilee has grown strained in the wake of her affair with artifact-hunter Sulman "Sully" Kahvek. After a fiery vision of a burning landscape, Victorio, fearing for his father, sets out in pursuit of Ethen, with Cesilee and lonely nobleman Lord Dorquin Shiel in tow. Joined as well by the treasure-seeking Sully and the mysterious Myrie Raleven, Victorio's party begins a dangerous quest across a magnificently-depicted multicultural fantasy world for the legendary city of Valadur. This is a memorable saga of supernatural power and human love from the increasingly impressive DeFino. (May)

Does that mean that if we hang out there, we will not receive a good time? Because promises were made, ma'am. I expect those promises to be upheld.

Well, it all depends upon what sort of good time you're looking for. :::wink, wink:::

I figured with my blog addy being on the book jacket, maybe I should have a greetings page should some poor, unsuspecting soul show up here, curious about who the hell I am. It really doesn't give them much, huh? Ha!

I like it as is. Lighthearted and giving a sense of your personality, which is what draws and keeps people. It's fun, and welcoming.

I would love to feature an excerpt from your book Finder on my blog “500 Words.” It’s free. Just send me 500 words from anywhere in the book. (It’s nice if it’s different from the sample offered on Amazon.) You can also send me anything else you’d like to post with the excerpt – author bio, blurb, artwork, etc. I will link to your book’s Amazon page, blog, etsy store (?!) or any other site you’d like to promote.

If you’re interested, let me know, if not, no problem.

Take care,
Tara Maya

You have captured the essence of men in general...In the finder...most erotic yet not profane...I love it so far...I am heading out Ziharial now...
It's quite refreshing to read about the plump girls getting some...I haven't known much ugly plump girls.

When I read this I knew you were of the plump class yourself.I truly wanted to.. to...see you. And I am NOT at all disappointed...You ARE DELICIOUS...

Keep Writing and creating emotions in us..me..he-he-he.

Love you writing

:) You've never seen this before? Yeah, I tried a "real" blog but didn't keep it up. I have peeps here, I figured it was a good place to stay. The welcome page works well. Did you see my naughty fan mail just above yours?

Yes, I saw it...Not sure what to say about that. It'll be a while before I put up my welcome page, but will do it soon.

Any particular reason it's not also on iBooks? That's where I usually Buy Things.

That's a good question. I'll ask my publisher and get back to you!

It's not on iBooks. No real reason why. When I asked my publisher, he said he hadn't really thought about it! Now he's going to look into it.
