Terry Gamble

Terry Gamble was born in Pasadena, California, the younger of two daughters of resolutely Victorian parents. A strange, pale child, she spent much of her early years under the piano or on a closet shelf reading books. Her first two novels, The Water Dancers and Good Family, are based in Northern Michigan where she spent her childhood summers. The Eulogist is set in Cincinnati, Ohio, where the author’s ancestors landed when they emigrated from Northern Ireland in 1819. The New York Times says: “Gamble seduces with her rich, rollicking portrait of life in Jacksonian Ohio." A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Michigan, Terry lives in Northern California with her artist husband and an ancient cat.
