About Terry Scott Niebeling

Hello, My name is Terry Scott Niebeling. I am a writer, biker, health advocate, genius, starving artist living in Minneapolis. I love being outside, but most of the year I am a shut-in, writing and such. I frequent the beach, restaurants, and the library. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I love writing, biking, and having a drink with friends. I invite conversation and critique. I write creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and prose for 3 different blogs; Mindinversion.net, dirtyterry.com, and mplsscene.com. I also do critiques for Yelp.com, T-mobile, and Newsflare.com. I am currently serving and cooking at a Greek Restaurant in NE Minneapolis to pay rent. If you care to contribute to a local writer/artist and enjoy reading on your smart device, check out my ebook on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BO67H96
