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 True Light (Restoration V3)?
True Light Jan 6, 2010
I love how she leaves you wanting more. I can't wait for the next book.
True Light CD Oct 15, 2009
Terri Blackstock did an excellent job with this story. I was especially impressed with the way she developed her characters. They have an intensity that caused me identify with them and learn from them. Forgiveness and humility were two re-occurring themes that made this story quite worth ones time. The story line was also quite dramatic with plenty of intrigue, yet not too intense, to give one a thrill and a chill without overdoing it. I was especially pleased that the audio version was unabridged.
Terri Blackstock's True Light Sep 23, 2009
I just finished True Light last night. I think Terri Blackstock does a wonderful job of keeping the suspense high throughout this book. The main protagonists in this sequel are Deni Branning and Mark Green. Things get ugly for Mark when he is suspected by the neighbors for attempted murder. And they continue to get worse. In the desperate times in Oak Hollow, people are starting to fall apart. The worst is coming out in people, yet Christ is transforming the hearts of those who love Him. They learn that with great blessing comes great responsibility.
I am truly enjoying this series and think frequently about how our own world, and my own life, might be affected by such a catastrophe. The characters are well-fleshed out and very compelling. I highly recommend this Restoration Novel series to anyone.
Terri Blackstock True Light Aug 22, 2009
As evidenced in the first two novels of the Restoration Series, Blackstock continues her 'grab you' style of writing. I couldn't wait to get to the last novel of this series! Now I am already in my third book of her 'Second Chances' series, and enjoying every bit of it. She completes one life story and continues with another familiar character in the next books. You will delight in her works!
Couldn't Help Myself Jul 16, 2009
This was the third book to the series and I just couldn't wait to start and finish reading just so that I could read the fourth book. The characters were so much like us today and it tested your character as a Christian. I read some of the pages of the back, so i could see how it ended. However, it was so good that I couldn't wait to get to the part I read. Mark's faith really make you think about your actions and responses. I love the way Deni humbled herself for love. It was a great good, you'll love book four.
