LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK PARTY: Terry Sue Harms, Author of Pearls My Mother Wore and Tami Casias, Author of Crystal Bound
Get out the crystals and the pearls. Seriously. We want you all to wear them when you come to the Ferry Plaza for our sparkling summer celebration of the work of two terrific authors, both self-published, both devoted to getting the word out on their books. That’s the spirit we love in a writer: bright and undaunted. These are our heroes.
Terry Sue Harms has been a practicing hairdresser since 1977 and currently owns her salon. In 1992 she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Mills College. In May of 2005, she was inspired, in response to the new reality TV craze, “to write a story where the losers were the winners.” Pearls My Mother Wore was born of that inspiration. Terry lives in Northern California with her husband, Lutrell.
Tami Casias wrote local news for years while raising four children. Nowadays, writing fiction for young adults while sitting in coffee shops has taken the place of city council meetings. She uses her degree in Journalism to research new ideas for stories. Tami lives with her husband, teenage son, and Yorkshire terrier, Bruiser, in Sonoma, California.
