She earned a Creative Writing MA from Florida State University, and her BA in Creative Writing is from St. Andrews University. Terra’s young adult novels include the critically acclaimed Criminal, Being Friends with BoysThe Summer of Firsts and LastsAfter the Kiss, and Pure. She has also written two middle grade novels: Drive Me Crazy (2015) and This Is All Your Fault, Cassie Parker (2016). To learn more about Terra and her life, follow her at @TerraMcVoy and visit her website http://terraelan.com.
