Terry Hojnacki,
author of I Can See With My Eyes Shut Tight, is an award-winning flash fiction writer, children’s book author, poet, novelist, editor, and lover of words. She is the founder and editor-in-chief of Sterling Script: A Local Author Collection which is one way she works to promote her local writing community.

Terry is a member of the Detroit Working Writers, the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers, the Rochester Writers, and the Tuesday Morning Writers. She is the facilitator of the Creative Writers Workshop and volunteer event coordinator for the Local Author Book Sale at the Sterling Heights Public Library. 

Her short stories and poetry have been published in Ghostlight: The Magazine of Terror, Pink Panther Magazine, Sterling Script: A Local Author Collection, and ARTIFEX. Her short story “SlasHer” appears in the horror anthology, Nicole’s Recurring Nightmares.

Terry is continuing work on her psychological thriller and a new picture book. In July, she published the 2023 edition of Sterling Script, the 6th book in the series. When not lost in her own words, she edits manuscripts, reads, encourages other authors, and volunteers in the writing community. 

At the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on October 12, Tammy Turgeon, Library Director, said, “Terry is a very dedicated volunteer who has had a strong impact on the quality of our programming. She spends hundreds of hours each year supporting the Sterling Heights Public Library and the local writing community. Thank you so much, Terry, for your enthusiasm, dedication, professionalism, and love of our library. I would like to present the City of Sterling Heights Volunteer of the Year Award to Terry Hojnacki.”
