Author Biography

A Navy brat and graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, LORRIE FARRELLY is proud to be a Fightin' Banana Slug (well, we’re really lovers, not fighters). Following graduate school at Northwestern University, she began a career in education that included teaching art to 4th graders, drama to 8th graders, and finally, math to high school students. (If anybody loses asymptotes, she can probably find them...)
She's a three-time winner on Jeopardy! (despite forgetting the chemical symbol for sulfuric acid ... oh, wait – she never knew that in the first place). She has shepherded wide-eyed foreign exchange students along Hollywood Blvd. ("As many stars and lunatics as there are in the Heavens"), and happily curried and shoveled as a ranch hand at Disneyland's Circle D Ranch. And always, she writes.
Lorrie has won a Presidential Commendation for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics. She's been a Renaissance nominee for Teacher of the Year and a finalist for the Orange Rose Award in romantic fiction. She's never won the lottery, except where her family is concerned. For her, they're the ultimate prize.

Captain Michael Cantrell of the Confederate Army leaves Virginia at the end of the Civil War, his entire life in shambles, his father and brother dead as a result of the war and his childhood home in ruins. His travels have taken him to the gold strike in Montana for a time, but are now carrying him back to his beloved South, his saddlebags full of gold and precious stones. Suddenly, he is sidetracked when he runs into an ambush in progress, where he saves the lives of a young woman and her even younger brother. He is critically injured by a rogue gunman. The target of the ambush is Annie Devlin, the owner of a small farm in Wind River Basin in Wyoming, a place surrounded by more raw beauty than Michael has ever seen. Annie nurses him back to health while trying to protect her land from being taken over by the evil Colonel Randolph, a land baron who wants to buy her out, the very man who hired the gunman to attack her. There is an immediate attraction between the rebel soldier and the beautiful young rancher, but those feelings have to be suppressed. There is no guarantee that Captain Cantrell will stick around.

Terms of Surrender is another beautifully crafted tale by Lorrie Farelly. This story, a mixture of passion and nail-biting suspense, will engage you and continue to hold on until you read the last page. Ms. Farrelly is an author who continues to come out with winners. I highly recommend Terms of Surrender to an audience who likes romantic fiction.
