Explore the ups and downs of life in ‘Raging River: A Book of Dramatic Writings,’ by Terry Michelsen

Terry Michelsen’s ‘Raging River’ is a collection of dramatic personal writings inspired by the author’s professors at Western Carolina University. Each piece takes the reader on a poignant journey from themes of madness, through family, fear, loss, guilt, and awakening, and finally to change. Michelsen’s semi autobiographical work is a look into her story of survival amidst the fault of memory, the experience of trauma and transition, and the transformative power of truth.Image

Terry Jean Wiemuth Michelsen moved to the mountains of western North Carolina from the suburbs of Chicago in 2001.  Michelsen holds a B.A. in English Literature, an M.A. in History, and a post-baccalaureate certificate in English/Professional Writing.  Her most treasured career was as Academic Advisor at Western Carolina University employing her intuitive skills as counselor and mentor to her students.  Her position was eliminated due to budget cuts which provided her with her most cherished opportunity to become a writer.

Michelsen’s publications include ‘Birds of Spirit,’ ‘Sweet Earth,’ ‘Raging River, ‘and ‘Soaring on Wings of Word.’  Her poetry has been published in ‘Mused Literary Review.’  Her historical scholarship was published in ‘Women Building Chicago 1790-1990’ (2001) edited by Schultz and Hast, and was cited in ‘Good Heart’s (2006) by Suellen Hoy.  Her book reviews on academic advising have been published in ‘NACADA.’  Also a painter, her paintings are displayed at galleries, bookstores, and festivals.
