By Terry don Foley
Fascinating author and storyteller, Terry don Foley, is sure to capture reader’s imagination with his just released novel, We Mortal Men. Inspired by the author’s own family history dating back to a south Texas cotton plantation in the 1800’s, the book showcases how a family’s heritage was divided into two races – one black and one white, and how love bridged the gap over time. This moving novel of family, racism, bigotry, and forgiveness, examines how one family’s heritage, rooted in love, transcends generations to come.
Not your typical plantation owner, Lee Washington Greene saw beyond the color of a man’s skin. Both devoted and deeply flawed, Greene’s life sets the stage for breaking down present day barriers of bigotry. Told through the eyes of an elderly black woman, with the help of her newfound friend and journalist, the timeless story finds the way into the heart of readers. Regardless of one’s skin color, Terry don Foley’s We Mortal Men will find its way into your heart, melts away any remnants of bigotry, and encourage love for your fellow man.

Meet Author- Terry don Foley
Terry don Foley is a Littlefield, Texas native having grown up on a working farm raising cattle, cotton, alfalfa hay, and sorghum. It was here that his love of life and adventure began, surrounded by a strong foundation of family and friends before he entered the oil fields of West Texas. It was in the oil patch that Terry found his calling, honing his skills as a drilling consultant, overseeing oil and gas exploration and development in North, Central and South America for a host of major oil and gas companies.
Terry has three children and a growing number of grandchildren. Tragically, a fourth child named Leigha Rose, died of cancer in 1996 following her courageous battle with cancer.
Mourning the loss of his beloved daughter and with alcohol as a crutch, Terry's world began to crumble. Soon he would find his 'drink of choice' was a diversion from reality. In 2009, Terry was convicted of a felony and would serve four years in a federal prison.
While incarcerated Terry wrote several short stories and a novel. By combining his imagination, experiences as a young man, knowledge of the jungle and love for Mayan history, his own unique style of writing was birthed. He published his first book in the fall of 2013, titled Ah Cacaw and the Demon Piri Aji, a short historical tale. The novel, Taste of Poison, was expanded to a three book series in June of 2015.
Today, Terry lives in his home town where he writes fiction and sees to the needs of his family. He is surrounded by a loving and forgiving community who knew him as a farm boy and one of their own. His life is simple - he lives to love and writes with a passion.
