Terri-Tonkin-4 (1).jpg


Hi everyone. My name is Terri, and I have worn many hats.

Most recently, the hats have involved writing. 

I am a multi-published author, with my own book, and reaching International and Australian Best Seller status with some compilation books. I have been a contributing author to an online magazine.

Late last year, 2021, I moved into ghost writing. One client manuscript is finished, another is in process, and I’m in conversations with potential clients.

Everyone has a story to tell, and I can help you achieve it.

My Story

When I finished high school, I was fortunate to many options open to me. I had passed the public service exams, passed the bank entry exams, was offered a position at Teachers College, was offered a full-time position working in a film laboratory, or the option to enlist in the Womens Royal Australian Force.

I chose the latter. I met my husband four days after enlisting, we were married thirteen months later and are still together today. I served just over three years, yet moved many times as my husband was still serving.

I am mum to two adult boys, and Narni (grandmother) to five beautiful grandchildren.

I have worked in a variety of locations around Australia, and employment positions. Retail, banking, youth programs, public service, volunteering, my own coaching business, facilitating a network group, author, and ghost writer.

I have always been a life-long learner, an avid reader, and family oriented. I enjoy Personal/Professional Development, and a good crime story. Travelling is something I want to do more of in the future.

I became an author when I ran out of excuses. I only wish I had done that sooner. I have found my passion.

If I can assist others to tell their story, in their words, I will be forever grateful.

Live your life by design, not by default. 

Follow your passion.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
