In a previous lifetime, Terry Carson was a practising lawyer with a passion for writing. He retired early from the law and has written several books with legal themes. He used to write legal columns for Grownups and other publications. Now that he has forgotten most of the law he once knew, he prefers to write about life in general. Terry believes that the most important thing is life, as one grows older, is to find plenty to laugh about. He never realised that most of the time he would be laughing at himself.
When not engaged in writing Terry enjoys walking, social cycling, travelling, reading, and researching New Zealand colonial history.
