More About Terri Blackstock
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as “The 700 Club” and “Home Life,” and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.
Terri Blackstock currently resides in the state of Mississippi. Terri Blackstock was born in 1957.

Reviews - What do customers think about Night Light (Restoration Novel V2)?
Real page-turner Mar 30, 2007
Terry Blackstock's first part, Last Light was very good. BUT, part 2, Night Light, is a flip-flip-flip page turner. There is no fowl language. I can't wait to read parts 3 & 4.
Could you survive? Mar 27, 2007
The blackout story continues in the second book in the Restoration series. The town is beginning to adapt to an lifestyle without electricity. It is like living in the middle ages again, with the people having to discover new ways to survive. The Banning family has managed to create a semi-comfortable life in this new world. They have food, will soon have water, shelter, and most importantly each other. However not everyone has it this lucky, as the reader is introduced to a group of siblings trying to fend for themselves without their mother. The two groups clash with a battle about what it takes to truly survive in this new world.
Reading about the filth that the children had to live in made me really uncomfortable at times. It's really amazing how we take just a working toilet for granted. This book pretty much explains survival of the fittest. Only the people who lived in communities where there was some sense of order was able to live a semi-normal life while others were forced in extreme poverty and disarray. At times I sided with the children because they were just trying to survive, but then I'd side with the Bannings because they had worked hard for their food and didn't deserve for it to get stolen. It was really scary reading about how people will take advantage of others in desperate times, even children just to get food or other supplies. Aaron, even though sometimes his actions were wrong, had the right intentions for his siblings, putting his family first before everything. I felt that was such a parallel to Deni in the first book, she put everything but her family as her primary focus. The only thing I found irksome is that everyone forgives each other really quickly even for doing terrible things to them. I just felt it a little unreal in such a time like that. Other than that, this was another thrilling read, another deep thinker of a book. Looking forward to when the next book comes out.
Terri does it again! Mar 8, 2007
Having been "in the dark" following Hurricane Rita, I really identified with the story line. I didn't think Terri could top the first one in the series. Wrong! There are a lot of life-lessons to be learned through the series. Frighteningly realistic, extremely eye-opening, and the great story line continues. Well done! (We have even used some of the tips to prepare for our next "in the dark" experience)
Even better than the first one Dec 28, 2006
The first book in this series is so good, I wasn't sure how Terri Blackstock could top it. But she did. She really managed to flesh out some of the characters a little more, and give us some real insight into their personalities, hopes, and dreams. I like the way she's making the character Deni grow up right before our eyes. She's becoming someone I'd like to know instead of someone I'd like to throttle, like in the first book... LOL
The part of the story surrounding the four children was even emotionally difficult to read because of the realism. (But don't let that stop you!) The older brother is another character she fleshed out quite well.
As always, I would recommend any book by Terri Blackstock. If you're looking for realistic adventure/drama that is clean and edifying to read, she's your author. I appreciate the way she always weaves in some strong spiritual growth into her character's lives. I'm looking forward to future books in this series!
incredible book Dec 11, 2006
This is the book to buy! I loved it. Terri Blackstock has always been one of my favorite authors and can't put her books down once I've started. Also, I love how she always manages to weave in the spiritual side, that trusting in God is the only way to go. This is one of my favorites!
