Mary Terzian, a long standing member of the Writers' Club of
Whittier, has been awarded Dan Poynter's 2012 Global E-Book Award for
Multicultural Non-Fiction for her book, The Immigrants' Daughter: A Private Battle to Earn the Right to Self-actualization.
Terzian, a freelance writer, was born in Egypt to Armenian parents and immigrated to the United States in 1967.
The Immigrants' Daughter, a coming of age memoir on her
experiences in Egypt, also won a Best Books 2006 Award and was finalist
in Indie Excellence 2007 Book Awards, both in multicultural nonfiction.
The book describes a fascinating journey through adolescence in search
of oneself, and is an inspiring story overall.
Three educational institutions have been interested in including excerpts from The Immigrants' Daughter in their curriculum materials targeted to high school and junior college
students. One of them, the Department of Education in Queensland,
Australia, posted an excerpt from the prologue on their website, with
the author's permission, for use by their students and teachers.
Terzian also contributes to newspapers, magazines, anthologies, and
to publications online. She acknowledges that her Writers' Club
affiliation has had an influence on bringing her stories alive, by
increasing her objectivity.
