Author Biography

Noel Terry completed a BA degree in the late 1970s when feminism was hell-bent on opening doors for women. When he updated it early 2000s after travelling the globe and operating a backpacker business, he already sensed which door had taken the most traffic. Noel’s observation of the changing mating world from sexual revolution to today’s (cosmetic) sensual revolution has been published in various periodicals. Now he has weaved it all into a book, citing the Global Financial Crisis as having an even greater impact on mating and gender matters than feminism ever did.

As a freelance journalist and now free-to-experiment indie author, Noel enjoys writing hard-slogging research to both enlighten AND entertain. He believes in the 4 ‘ity’s’ in writing research for today’s non-fiction in Society & Culture – credibility, brevity, mixed with a little hilarity and sensuality. Hopefully it will attract younger readers to social commentary to better understand today’s complex world. But if the new zeitgeist of indie publishing is to defy the ivory tower of tradition in what gets published – and how – it is only with the support of indie readers that will make that happen.

You might see Noel on the dance floor for he is a keen Lindy Hop/Jitterbug dancer in the swing revival craze sweeping the globe. He is hoping to pick up a few exotic steps on his next venture into how the marriage market panned out in post-apartheid South Africa where his daughter now lives, so watch this space.

Marriage War: Lipstick Breadwinners, Erotic Housewives by Noel Terry speaks about marriages prevalent in the current society. He says that to get married well and be happy throughout nowadays is an art. It is not something that is easy. Women have become equal breadwinners and rise of women in today's society is noteworthy. The book mainly speaks about male/female equality, on how times have changed, and how the marriage scene is now. The book portrays women as bold and strong, and rising up the economic ladder, and men as weaker and more subdued.

The book discusses problems faced by men and women in having a peaceful coexistence. The reader can actually see many of the factors mentioned in the book dominating current society. The roles of men and women and how they work towards an amicable existence is handled well. The constant competition between men and women at home, in a marriage, and corporate office is another topic of discussion.

Marriage War also speaks about how in recent times men are attracted to women who bring in a good pay packet. The earlier stigma attached to these types of successful women has undergone changes now. Society on the whole has undergone a transformation. The book speaks about the divorce culture, second marriages, and how women choose better partners when they remarry. The author handles a relevant topic with finesse.
