There’s just no denying it—SPOUSES ARE IN! Look at Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer, the cutest married couple on the Internet. They’re both artists, both cool, and both very successful.
Then there’s me and my spouse…not so cute, definitely lacking in the cool factor, and if judged solely by our bank account, not nearly as successful. Nevertheless, we are a couple. More important, we’ve been married far longer than Neil and Amanda. (Good luck catching up, guys!)
In an attempt to up our cool factor, I’ve decided to create a page dedicated to (drum roll, please)…my husband, Terrence Metz.
The first thing you should know is that I never call my husband Terrence. (I take that back. I call him Terrence when I’m angry with him…which, of course, is never.) Among friends and family, Terrence is known as T-Metz. I won’t go into the reason for this, as it’s rather personal. (Suffice it to say it involves underwear and boarding school.)
The second thing you should know is that T-Metz is also an author. And here’s where it gets confusing. As an author, he goes by Terrence Metz—not ScifiWriterDad, as many of you, I’m sure, assumed. (There may indeed be a ScifiWriterDad out there, but just to clear things up—I’m not married to him.)
Anyway, Terrence Metz is the co-author of this book:
As you can see, it’s a business book. Soooo, not as cool as an Amanda Palmer album, but it does have a great cover. Also, his co-author, Maxine Attong, lives in Trinidad, which definitely ups the exotic factor. Plus, she’s really nice.
The third thing you should know about my husband—especially if you’re one of those people who work in an office (managing things and working on projects…doing things that people who work in offices do all day) is that he teaches facilitation (MGRush.com) and has his own awesome blog. If you don’t know what facilitation is (Believe me, you wouldn’t be the first!) check out his blog: Facilitative Leadership and Facilitator Training or TerrenceMetz.com
Finally, I just want to add that while we may not be Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer, I wouldn’t trade being us for them any day. (Well, maybe on Tuesdays and Wednesdays…but not every day.)
That’s it. That’s my husband, T-Metz (a.k.a. The author, Terrence Metz.)
