After a successful transition from Fort Hood,
Texas to Baton Rouge, Louisiana in June Terry used the Army
College Fund to finance his education. He naturally selected
Mass Communication as the area where he wanted to dedicate his
studies and boy did it pay dividends. The use of words and the
manipulation of information he learned while training to become
a news reporter is evident in his first novel Game Recognize
Terry has stated several times that he wrote the first five chapters of the book out of boredom while training to work as a claim representative for State Farm Insurance. It was the overwhelming response he received from people that he let read those first chapters that motivated him to see the book through to its completion.
While he worked to complete Game Recognize
Game, Terry put in motion a makeshift marketing plan that
helped create a resounding industry buzz before the novel was
even available to be purchased. He gave the preview to his book
to anyone that would take the time to read it from the very day
that it was written. This innovative strategy paired with a
titillating plot is sure to ignite a path to the minds and
hearts of thousands of readers who will come to adore the work
of Terry DeRon for years to come.
