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 When Dreams Cross (Second Chances)?
Not her best series Jan 30, 2006
This series is too simplisitic and not as in depth as her other series. It is enjoyable to read once for a light afternoon break, but not worth a second read.
When Dreams Cross Jul 20, 2005
After the first book, Never Again Say Good-bye, this book followed Blackstocks style perfectly. I was more able to identify with these characters than the first books, so it drew me in a little more. This was another good one from Terri Blackstock.
Timely Jun 26, 2002
Terry Blackstock's "When Dreams Cross" is a well written story about the distructiveness and havoc that too much pride can have on a relationship. Without preaching, this talented author gives readers insight into the struggle we all face to let GOD be first in our lives and to learn to bend to his will. This is my first Blackstock book and I am now a fan with the intent to read more from this great author. Beverly J Scott author of Righteous Revenge
A Great Battle of His & Her Wills! Oct 3, 2000
This well done romance begins strong in first chapter with development of two strong-willed, prideful people who need each other to accomplish their dreams. Could feel the torrents of clashes between Justin and Andi keenly, inside and out, and enjoyed the challenging roller coaster of circumstances that finally grounds their mutual faith and drives them to work together. Marked my book throughout with checks where the author delivers memorable descriptive phrases, such as, "Just Justin. The words didn't go together. It was like saying, 'Just napalm.'"
Suspense and mystery entwined with romance May 29, 2000
This is the first of Blackstock's novels that I ever read, and have since read all of Second Chances, Suncoast Chronicles, and Newpointe 911. The romance part of When Dreams Cross was not very creative and it was easy for me to figure out that Justin and Andi would eventually find each other in the end. However, what made this book great was the suspense and mystery throughout the story and the apparent sabotage of Promised Land. This thread of trying to figure out "whodunnit" kept me reading until the outcome and was the first inkling that I got that Blackstock is a much stronger suspense writer than she is romance writer. Apparently, she now realizes that too, because her later two series bring her skill of mystery writing to the forefront and put the romance angle as pleasant secondary plotlines. When Dreams Cross was a great mystery and only a fair romance (which is why I deducted one star), but worth reading by any Blackstock fan, any Christian who has ever questioned God's plan for the future, or anyone who has ever failed at romance and gun-shy to try again.
