Terence J. Henley, Terry to his friends, is disabled, formerly an electrical engineer and educated up to a degree in physics and maths. He had to retire in 1993 after he developed an Epidurmoid Cyst inside his spinal column and was given three months to live. He has read mainly science fiction novels all his life and is very interested in space. He also wrote short stories for his friends while taking their English exams in school.
He has also designed three spaceships and the first one he sent to NASA, three years later a very close replica of it appeared on the cover of Spaceflight (a BIS publication) which turned out to be the Space Shuttle. He also designed a theoretical engine with engineers from Rolls Royce engine division back in the 70’s.
His wife is continually at his side helping him through the long and often very painful days and nights. Terry is an amateur astronomer and a member of the BIS (British Interplanetary Society), and he follows the space programme with keen interest. He hopes he will see when the first people set foot on Mars and start a new life there. His other interests are films, Sci-Fi and Thrillers photography, model building and reading, mainly SF and Horror. His favourite author is Steven King.
Terry has written a Sci-fi trilogy and a teen romance and a large number of novelettes. He now also edits the on-line magazine Odyssey for the BIS (British Interplanetary Society) and is helping to edit a new anthology by BIS authors.
