Terry’s writing exploits were not limited to his mystery suspense fiction novels. He was also a poet, though his works in this field were not quite as renowned. Some of his fans probably discovered Terry through the newspaper columns he wrote.
Words have always been a part of the author’s life. The people that are acquainted with him know that Terry loves the great outdoors. He is a man of nature, the sort of fellow that is happier outside, trekking through forests and breathing the clean air. It could be argued that his passion for nature also encouraged his writing because it allowed him the opportunity to bring the great outdoors to people who couldn’t access it.
The people that have read his novels will tell you that he is very descriptive. Terry Oliver Mejdrich tries to deliver the best mysteries possible. But a significant chunk of his writing is spent bringing his outdoor settings to life. While some people find this annoying, the majority of his readers appreciate the approach because it immerses them in the setting of each story.
So many of the stories the author writes are set in Northern Minnesota. And you can tell that Terry knows the region because he provides such vivid details of the location’s natural history. Some people wonder why he hasn’t attempted to produce a nonfiction volume exploring the minutiae of Northern Minnesota’s natural wonders. You can tell that he truly loves the area.
But that is hardly surprising seeing as has lived there for so long, having planted his roots on a remote lake with his wife Darlene.
Best Terry Oliver Mejdrich Books
When Terry isn’t writing poetry or contributing newspaper columns, he does freelance writing work, with some of the best novels in his bibliography including:
A Mammoth Resurrection: Charlie Johnson wanted to live a peaceful and quiet life. And that is exactly what he found in his home on a quiet lake. The outdoorsman wasn’t like other people, or at the very least, he didn’t feel like other people. But that was fine. Johnson just wanted solitude, and he thought he had finally secured it. He had no idea that a young woman deputy and a corporate executive would completely upend his life.
It all began with the Skinner. The serial killer was out and about and Sheriff Bodeman was determined to find him. This is where Johnson came into the picture. Despite appearances, Johnson had several traits that made him vital to Sheriff Bodeman’s investigate efforts, the most prominent being his tracking abilities.
Johnson wanted to hide and to heal but Bodeman destroyed his predictable existence and placed him on the trail of a suspected serial killer. None of them knew at the time that things would go so horribly wrong and that the serial killer had a secret of immense importance.
None of them expected Johnson to change from the hunter to the hunted, to become prey to forces he hadn’t quite foreseen. But now, they are all in a predicament that only Johnson can resolve. He has always been a survivor. But the hero has other problems on his hands.
First of all, he has formed an unlikely alliance with Jerry Koler and Lora Whitney. He isn’t convinced that he can trust Lora. But she saved his life. So Johnson will do everything in his power to keep her safe. Secondly, Johnson is fast approaching a critical turning point in his life, one that will force him to finally face the demons of his past.
Ghosts in the Heart: A campground attendant is dead. But the death is the least complicated aspect of the situation. Two people witnessed the crime. But they are both certain that Bigfoot did the killing. This makes no sense to the authorities who would rather point the finger at a bear. However, Charlie Johnson isn’t satisfied with that explanation either. It is up to him to get to the bottom of the matter.
