After writing 16 books and championing over 200 authors through the publishing process, I started Spellbound to help writers like you get their book published efficiently and professionally.

She pulls from her Russian lineage as a tarot teacher and has been publishing mind-body-spirit + cookbooks since 2000. She owns Wise Skies Advice and Spellbound Publishers. When she's not reading, you can find her making memories in her garden or kitchen, and sailing into new territories.

Dr. Terry Heller, Managing Editor

A fourth-generation Texan and longtime education policy writer and editor for the Texas Senate, Dr. Terry Heller retired to MidCoast Maine to write and compose in the quiet beauty of rose gardens and towering spruce. As managing editor, Terry motivates and supports writers at all levels, moving small mountains wherever required. If experience counts, she has over 50 years of it: her careers have always overlapped as teacher, researcher, policy writer, author, editor, pianist, and philanthropist.

Terry is passionate about words, music, community, family, and politics. When she's not editing for Spellbound, you can find her writing the Great American Musical on the shores of the Sheepscot in Wiscasset, Maine with her faithful black lab, Etta, who is vigilant in defending their 200-year-old cottage from silver-backed squirrels and unwary snowplows.

Cheryl A. Foster, Editor

Cheryl A. Foster is a writer and teacher in the great city of Houston, Texas. Studying history inspired her current work Fealty, and many books to come. Friends since they were riding horses in their high school days, Cheryl and Tiffany worked together at Spellbound to develop Dreamboat Press, Cheryl's very own publishing label.
