Kari Tervo

Kari Tervo is the creator of Shards of Glass In Your Eye!, a humor and random zine characterized by unconventional observations.

Tervo was raised in the remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan, U.S.A. She grew up in Dodgeville, MI (pop. 500), where she created Shards Of Glass In Your Eye! in 1995. She attended the University of Michigan, where she majored in psychology. She earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Maryland in 2004, where she concentrated on research in schizophrenia and neuropsychology. She is currently a forensic neuropsychology consultant and zine-maker.

Tervo created her first zine in 1987, when she was in 6th grade. Each issue had a run of one copy, created with 1/8 sheet notepaper and colored ballpoint pen (that four-clicker one!). "The Tervo Times" was a humor-and-gossip "newspaper" about current events, book characters, and classmates. Tervo distributed each of the two issues to that girl who sat in front of her.

Tervo uses writing as a means of turning her socially-inappropriate impulses into something tangible and productive. When she's not writing, she enjoys electronic dance music, making handcrafted worry stones, and amateur photojournalism. Historically, she has excelled at spelling bees. She lives in Los Angeles.
