The Author

Terri Farley Terri Farley has always loved horses and wide-open spaces.

Growing up in Los Angeles and San José, California didn't keep her from saving her allowance for rides at nearby stables. After college, she taught English and Reading in an inner-city high school, but always longed for the open range, where mustangs ran free. At last, she married and followed her dreams to northern Nevada, the land of wild horses and wild places.

Terri's experience hiking, mountain biking, witnessing wild horse round-ups and riding on cattle drives sparked hundreds of stories in her imagination. She began writing the adventures she longed for as a city girl.

Now, Terri is the best-selling author of the Phantom Stallion series for young readers and Seven Tears into the Sea, a contemporary Celtic fantasy nominated as a YALSA best book. She was honored by the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame and her books have sold more than two million copies in 28 countries.

Terri is an advocate for the West's wild horses and she works with young people learning to make their voices heard. Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them is her first work of non-fiction. Chosen as a Junior Library Guild selection Wild at Heart is due out from Houghton-Mifflin-Harcourt September 2015.

She lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains where she shares a 1900's farmhouse with her journalist husband, a talkative cat named Panda, a soccer-playing dog named Zito and Fluffy the goldfish.
