Book Banter S3 EP 106: Terreece M. Clarke Interview

Hello My Happy People,

Today I am sharing my conversation with Terreece M. Clarke. It is impossible to spend time speaking with Terreece and not come away in a better mood than when you started the conversation. With a ready smile and a kind word for everyone she meets, it is easy to see how her personality plays into her ability to connect so well with her followers. 

Terreece's Courageous Love Series is more proof of her ability to connect with others.  At the time of this writing, her first book in the series, Heartbeat, is sitting at number one and number two on two similar Amazon bestseller lists. While this book was released in 2022, it is still gaining traction in the romance reading community. It continues to be mentioned on various romance review book sites as being one of the best books on the market today. 

According to several reviews listed on, Heartbeat is a well rounded story that makes the readers laugh out loud, cry, and  delivers engaging, sexy characters who readers love. From Terreece's website, she is "passionate about representation, amplifying voices that are often muted, championing small businesses, highlighting workers who make a big business great, and taking on society’s tough topics. We have to model the change we want and share the megaphone so everyone is included."

It is obvious from her stellar reviews and her placement on bestseller lists that her readers appreciate her work and her storytelling. Which makes it all the more amazing that she was not always focused on becoming an author. Terreece started out her college career with the intention to be a broadcast journalist, but quickly found out that the stories she wanted to tell were not the ones she would be assigned. She took a leap of faith in herself and changed her career path. Check out today's episode to hear her story.

Please Note: Some of her books come with trigger warnings. Please visit her website for more information.
