Hi, I’m Fred Terling

storyteller, spinner of yarns, character creator,

word slayer, speaker,

over-achiever, insomniac.

Welcome to my

digital blanket fort.


2020 - Present


Writer - Creator

Completed three novels over the past 2 years. A science fiction novel set in the Star Trek universe fifteen years prior to the original series and the first two gothic thriller novels set in the fictional town of Kinston, Pennsylvania. See more details on all novels including release dates under my latest projects.




Praise for Olath's Bride & Ballad of Colt Sturgess.

"Loved the characters and the storyline. It’s horror, mystery and a little love story, too."

"What a rollercoaster ride! Everytime I think I can relax, Bam! You get me right between the eyes!"

"I read a LOT of horror and this one stands out. I like that it's more gothic than gore; more mystery and thriller than sadistic and slasher."

"Each part of the story is a separate thread that is woven together to create a new whole mythology set in real small town American. It was fascinating seeing how those individual threads are spun together."

"The story drips with nostalgia. The teen characters are very King-esque and I mean that in the most flattering of ways. Great job. Looking forward to the next. Hurry, please!"

"The story grabs you so that you cannot put the book down. I look forward to the next book being released. "

"Your book was fucking amazing!"

"Great book! It’s the second in the series with plenty of twists and turns. I didn’t want to put it down!"

Praise for Maiden Voyage.

Welcome back to the beginning...

"I love how well this story captures the feel of the original show. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next."

"The characters felt like old friends and the story played out just like an old, long-lost episode."

"Loved this book! I've read a couple dozen Star Trek books at this point, and I can easily say it's one of my favorites. It was like being thrown into a missing episode."

"Wonderful! That was a fun read. Thank you so much for sharing it."

"It takes me back to the original series. Every time the computer says 'working' I wanted to leap out of my seat and cheer!"

"It took me back to being a kid watching Star Trek in the 1970's and loving every single minute of it!"

"Curiosity begs, how long did you study the terminology to write this like you've flown on a starship before?"
