Terra Trevor is the author of a diverse body of work. Her stories illuminate our humanity, remind us to be open, to connect, to hope, to question, or bring change. She is known for works in which she uses imagery and lyric prose to address spirituality, family ties, her identity as a mixedblood and her connection to the landscape. 

She is the author of Pushing up the Sky, and a contributor to 15 books, including Children of the Dragonfly: Native American Voices On Child Custody and Education (The University of Arizona Press), and The People Who Stayed: Southeastern Indian Writing After Removal (University of Oklahoma Press). Her work and portrait is featured in Tending the Fire: Native Voices and Portraits (University of New Mexico Press), Voices Confronting Pediatric Brain Tumors (Johns Hopkins University Press), Take A Stand: Art Against Hate (Raven Chronicles Press), and in numerous other books, anthologies and literary journals. She lives with her husband and family on the Central Coast of California and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Outside my open window a light breeze is blowing and an occasional red tail hawk sweeps over with light shining through her rust red tail. For me, writing is a way of reaching out to others, to people I don't know. I sit alone, in silence, but all that time I’m out there, connecting with whoever reads my words. 

I value the collective experience collaborating with other writers. In addition to my solo work I'm a contributing author of 15 books. Within my collection of writings online many are serious/substantial, balanced with lighter topics. Most of all, my writing is timeless (vs. timely).
