Terra Little was born and raised in Missouri, in a city that's legendary for Imo's Pizza; "Chinaman" Fried Rice) & Vess Soda; and White Castle burgers, Oh, and the Gateway Arch. It's famous for that, too.
Professionally, Terra holds advanced degrees in both Professional Counseling and Secondary Education, as well as undergraduate degrees in Criminology and Sociology, respectively. Accordingly, the bulk of her career endeavors have been and continue to be dedicated to healing and helping fields, particularly in therapeutic and educational spaces catering to youth and young adults. Currently, Terra divides her career endeavors between education-based and community crisis intervention initiatives.
Personally, Terra has been accused of being a helicopter mom to one adult daughter and a shamelessly doting grandmother to three beautiful brown boys. This is a charge that she willingly accepts. Period.
In other news, in 2004, Terra launched Brown Recluse Books, LLC, to self-publish Running from Mercy, her first contemporary fiction novel. Soon afterward, Mercy was adapted into mainstream publishing and re-launched nationally under the Q-Boro Books/Urban Books banner. Since then, Terra has authored more than eight, nationally-published contemporary, women's, and romantic fiction titles, many of which are critically-acclaimed fan-favorites, and she has also contributed to the acclaimed Gumbo for the Soul Series. Terra is also a prolific thematic, educational & motivational speaker.
Additionally, Terra publishes specialty journals/workbooks and other self-help texts under the Brown Recluse Books, LLC, and she is also the creator of February 365!, which is a purposeful platform for increasing awareness, acknowledgement, and appreciation of Black culture, Black lives & Black History.
