Tera Fulbright

In Tera’s world, she is dedicated to driving stronger engagement at her place of work, creating innovative programming for SF conventions—including her own (ConGregate)—and writing short stories that tug on the emotional heartstrings of her readers.

With over twenty years of event planning experience, Tera Fulbright uses that knowledge to create new and different programming at ConGregate—a convention for the fans, by the fans. Outside of
fandom, as a SHRM-CP and PHR certified human resources professional, she works at the Center for Creative Leadership as an Engagement and Operations Specialist.

She is also the author of several short stories including her first, “History in the Making” published in the anthology Rum & Runestones in 2010. Her stories have continued to be published in various other anthologies, including Athena’s Daughters and three Tales of Fortannis anthologies. Her last story, “A Charming Encounter” was published in Tales of Fortannis: A Bard Act to Follow in 2016.

When not writing, working or running cons, you can find Tera with her family and friends playing Pathfinder, coming up with a new costume idea, or curled up with a good book.
