YOU WISH was the winner of the “Best Chick Lit/Women’s Lit” in the eFestival of Words 2013.
Do we control our own destiny – or might it be determined by fate, coincidence, luck…or even magic? Ruth, an amateur psychic with a husband who smokes cannabis for breakfast, is haunted by a tragic event from her teenage years which, she suspects, was the result of a wish she made on an allegedly enchanted stone. Too embarrassed to admit her fears, she keeps her secret to herself for twenty-five years. Petra is the perennial singleton amongst her friends, unable, she thinks, to fall in love. She comes across the stone at a Psychic Fair and makes a wish, just for fun. As the wish begins to come true she wishes she had chosen her words with more care. Spoilt, weight-obsessed Sarah wants nothing more than to be “size zero”. As her life spirals downwards into the seedy world of drug abuse and addiction, she remembers the day at the Psychic Fair when she wished for her heart’s desire. When Ruth learns of the fates of Petra and Sarah she is forced to confront her guilt and discover the truth about the Wishing Stone… Terry Tyler’s debut novel is a quirky contemporary drama exploring the themes of family affairs, infidelity and guilt, incorporating jealousy, drug abuse and the obsession of a Facebook stalker, against a backdrop of secrets and superstition.

Terry Tyler’s first book on Amazon, ‘You Wish’, was the winner of the ‘Best Women’s Lit/Chick Lit’ category in the eFestival of Words 2013.
Terry lives in the north of England with her husband. She has six novels on Amazon: ‘You Wish’, ‘Nobody’s Fault’, ‘The Other Side’ and ‘What It Takes’ fall into the all encompassing contemporary drama genre – relationship stuff, love, jealousy, obsessions, addiction and general every-day angst, whereas ‘Dream On’ and ‘Full Circle’ are lighter and can be placed under the banner of rock fiction/romcom. Her short story collection, ‘Nine Lives’, covers all these and more, with some intriguing twists in the tales…
Terry is currently at work on her next book, which is another contemporary drama with an unusual historical fiction aspect – all will be revealed! She hopes this will be finished in around April 2014, providing she does not become too distracted by Twitter and Spider Solitaire.
She has a blog on which she writes about anything she feels like, and also writes for the UK Arts Directory on a weekly basis, about self-publishing. Both blogs are widely read.
