Derek McFadden is the author of the novel What Death Taught Terrence, available in February of 2020 wherever fine books are shelved. Other works of note include the well-regarded Prose From A Grandson To A Senior Fellow. Born with a mild case of cerebral palsy, his is "a voice for those whose voices have yet to be heard," according to the online publication Audacity Magazine.
About WHAT DEATH TAUGHT TERRENCE: "In What Death Taught Terrence, Derek McFaden builds a world that satisfies both our desire for imagination and our need for personal introspection. I found this story immediately immersive, and it stuck with me long after I finished. McFadden is doing something rare in today's fiction-exploring the limits of what we will believe to form a better understanding of who we are."
- Alex Dolan, author of The Euthanist and The Empress Of Tempera
