Terzian's teachers played a significant role in her life by showing their trust in her writing abilities. Her articles and stories have been termed inspiring, fascinating, “laced with the perfect balance of humor and sarcasm . .  .” Some of her experiences are hilarious or outright  hair-raising.

On a personal level, Terzian has become a wolf in a lamb’s attire. As a single parent she has raised a charming daughter, sweated at household management including plumbing, painting, pruning trees and other jobs bigger than her shoes. She has jumped buildings, crossed oceans, and has handled lawsuits and IRS audits successfully.
