About Our Speaker
Terrie Wolf has traveled the world in search of good stories and great books. As a member of the international media, an award-winning journalist and promotions specialist, Terrie has learned what it takes to write well, get accepted and develop notoriety; not necessarily in that order! She is happiest when given the opportunity to pitch softly, edit gently and market fiercely. Terrie joined AKA in September of 2009 as the Foreign Rights Specialist in addition to her other talents. Wolf Literary Services and Anita Kushen and Associates merged in October 2009.
Terrie mastered her skills in the literary world from inside the offices of several large companies, which include CBS, NBC, and Hobson's Press. She studied English Literature at Cambridge University, Creative Writing at NYU and Journalism at CU-Denver.
Terrie's credits include the EMMY, Queen's Service Award (UK), La Voz y Papel (Spain), and Young Journalist of the Year.
Terrie represents the books we share; the books which make us grow. Fiction: Inspirational (Things of Faith), Multi-Cultural, Women’s, Children’s (all), Romance (all), and Westerns. Non-fiction: Culinary/Cookbooks, Humor, Memoir, Religion, Music and Nature.” (Link)
