Interview: Terry Reid of Crashing Down to Earth

In this post we get to have a short chat with author Terry Reid who has penned Crashing Down to Earth. I met Terry thanks to one of the several author groups that I am part of. One of the many great things is that I get to meet authors in countries and areas other than my own. So settle in, grab your beverage of choice, and let's meet Terry Reid!

1) Can you start by telling readers a little about yourself?
A) I’m a relatively new author based in Dumfries, south west Scotland. I have been writing for years but have only recently got into publishing. I’m 25 and I am hoping to have a long, productive career in writing.
2) Can you tell us how you got into writing?

I’ve been writing since before I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed it. I kind of feel like it’s my calling.

3) Can you tell us about your book. What's it about?

My new book is called Crashing Down to Earth. It is the first of a two part series. It follows a young woman called Hayley, who lives with her charismatic, and sometimes annoying, guardian angel, Alex, in Glasgow. Everyone can see Alex but his identity is a secret except to Hayley and a few close friends.

An ex-lover of Alex threatens to kill Hayley, but it quickly becomes apparent that there are bigger dangers coming their way.

4) What inspired you to write a story like this? Are the characters based on anyone you know?
One of the characters in the book, Alex the angel, was inspired by a dream I had several years ago. The setting of Glasgow was also drawn from the same dream.

5) Is there anything that you are working on at the moment and can you tell us a little bit about it?

I’m currently writing the second part to Crashing Down to Earth. 

Sounds interesting! I'm looking forward to reading your book Terry! Angels and spirit guides are both fun to work with and write, and everyone puts their own spin in. I like the cover too, those clouds and lightning in the background are fascinating. Makes me want to paint!
