Bio: Hybrid Author. Full Bio: Terri was born in the historic maritime city of Plymouth, England in 1965. At the age of 9 she moved with her family to Cornwall, to a small village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, where she discovered a love of writing that has stayed with her ever since. She also discovered apple-scrumping, and how to jump out of a hayloft without breaking any bones, but no-one’s ever offered to pay her for doing those. Since publishing in paperback for the first time in 2002, Terri has appeared in both print and online fiction collections, and is proud to have contributed to the Shirley Jackson award-nominated hardback collection: Bound for Evil, by Dead Letter Press with her short story The Truth Inside the Lie. She now lives in Plymouth with her youngest son, and works in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Plymouth University, where she is constantly baffled by the number of students who don’t possess pens.

Hi Terri – great titles, I’m looking forward to visiting them.
I write historical novels, based on real people. Currently I’m researching William Orpen (1878-1931) – war artist, WW1. My queries are small details that I haven’t come across in my reading – a huge amount and so interesting – about his batman (name,assigned/chosen by him/what rank); also his driver and the type of car.
If you could point me in the right direction, please…
Hi, Patricia. I’m afraid I know very little about the officer side of things, as my research covered mostly female ambulance-drivers, and front-line troops. I did discover though, that the batman was assigned to them, rather than chosen (except in a few instances) They were usually at the rank of private, (in the British forces) but gained a higher rank more quickly than regular infantry, and as for the vehicles they drove – unless they were really high ranking and had a D-Type Vauxhall – I’d assume they were mostly still driving the good old Model T Ford at that time. (I had a ‘Tin Lizzie’ in my own narrative, as I discounted the likelihood of my officer being important enough!) Sorry I can’t be of more help, but my books are fiction so I didn’t go into specifics of actual people unless they crept into my timeline and I had to find out something specific about them. I hope you find some better answers!
