About Terry Conway
For the past fifteen years I’ve been a contributing writer to a variety of national & regional magazines, daily newspapers and websites. I have written about an array of topics such as arts & culture, chefs, food & drink, business entrepreneurs, travel, history, thoroughbred racing, and the animal and natural world.
Most recently my work has been published regularly in Blood-Horse, Long Island Boating World and The Hunt and PA Equestrian magazines. I've also contributed articles to the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News, the Delaware County Times, and the Montgomery County Nwspapers. I have been a Arts & Culture correspondent for Newsworks, the website for WHYY-TV (PBS in Philadelphia). I have also written for ESPN.com, America's Best Racing, the Paulick Report and Thoroughbred Racing Commentary. I am a regular contributor to the following top-flight travel websites: JustLuxe, JustSayGo, Gallaghers Travels and SeeTheSouth, as well as the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association website.
In August 2015 my wife Jane and I and our Toller retriever Smarty moved to Savannah, actually Wilmington Island, about 15 minutes from historic downtown and 10 minutes to our favorite, quirky beach town, Tybee Island.
Jane's family dates back in Savannah to the 1840s and 1850s. Over the past two decades we visited Savannah and Tybee Island quite often and now are pleased to call it home. Our house on Wilmington Island overlooks a beautiful 200-acre stretch of marshland that spotlights an array of egrets, great blue herons, ospreys, red-tail hawks, otters, raccoons and other marsh critters. Many evenings we sit on our lower deck where we enjoy the sights and sounds of “marsh world.”
That's Edgar (above), a Great Egret perched on our lower deck on the marsh. BlueBoy (below), is our resident Great Blue Heron who has a wingspan of roughly six feet. Sporting a large bright yellow bill, BlueBoy often buzzes the marsh early in the morning and toward dusk. He can strike like lightening to grab a fish or snap up other aquatic or land prey.
Through my writing over the past few years I have traveled to spectacular destinations such destinations Lake Tahoe, Sun Valley, Idaho; Cody, Wyoming/Yellowstone Park; Saratoga Springs, the Adirondacks, Saratoga Springs and Rhinebeck, New York; Port Clyde and Monheghan Island, Maine, Avalon and Stone Harbor, New Jersey; Middleburg, Charlottesville and Richmond, Virginia; Tampa and St. Petersburg, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key, Florida and St. Simons Island, Georgia.
My travel articles thoughtfully explore the history of the region along with museums, music and the arts, chefs and restaurateurs, wineries and craft breweries, outdoor and sporting adventures as well as profiling captivating personalities of those regions.
In addition to my writing career I owned a marketing company where I represented a diversified list of clients in the areas of publicity, marketing and business development-- such as the famed Baldwin's Book Barn, Thoroughbred Charities of America and the Kahunaville restaurant chain. In another life I was the founder, publisher and editor of Life Sports Magazine.
Along with Jane and Smarty I look forward to writing about new adventures in Savannah, the surrounding Lowcountry and other regions of Georgia and the Southeast. That's Smarty below with pals Willie & Nelson.
