Terry Odell | What's Romantic Suspense
September 15, 2012
According to the publishing industry, romantic suspense includes all romance-themed mystery sub-genres, from cozy to thriller. There's the added hero/heroine story  Read More...

Terry Odell took up writing when she ran out of space on her walls for needlepoint and needed another creative outlet. She began writing what she thought was a mystery, until her daughters told her it was a romance. Romantic suspense suits her tastes, and in that genre, she writes the Blackthorne, Inc. cover ops series as well as the Pine Hills Police series. She also writes the Mapleton Mystery series, although she thinks of all her books as "Mysteries With Relationships." In addition to the 2012 HOLT Medallion for Best Romantic Suspense, and her Best Romantic Suspense from the Colorado Romance Writers, she’s been a finalist in the Daphne du Maurier, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the Aspen Gold, as well as placing in the Laurel Wreath, and Best of the Best from Night Owl Romances. In addition, she is the author of numerous contemporary romance short stories with The Wild Rose Press.

When she writes, one of her favorite methods of developing characters is to shove them together and listen to them talk. She enjoys sharing what she’s learned about writing with others, and has given workshops for libraries and writing groups. A graduate of UCLA, she now makes her home in the mountains of Colorado where she can work on her next book and watch the wildlife from her window.
