Biography

Tyler Terrones

Tyler Terrones was born and raised in Ottawa, Illinois, where he spent his childhood exploring nature, playing sports, and watching I Love Lucy reruns, which taught him the importance of comedic timing and a good pratfall. As a teen, music became his passion, and since then a guitar has never been far from his reach. After graduating with a degree in Communication Theory from Eastern Illinois University, then working in the Rocky Mountains, Tyler returned to his hometown to pursue creative endeavors punctuated by several ill-fated career choices.
 
Tyler now writes middle grade and young adult novels with Julia Durango. When he’s not writing or hiding from the doorbell, he plays lead guitar for Katie Belle and the Belle Rangers.

But then he meets Rose. Rose is funny, beautiful, smart and an incredible musician; Zeus can hardly believe that someone like her exists, let alone seems interested in being with him. However, while Zeus is counting down the minutes until he can see her next, Rose is counting down the days until she finds out whether she will be able to leave their small town to pursue her dreams.
