Highlights
I have 20-plus years of writing experience. Capstone Press and Picture Window Books have published my nonfiction books. I have published magazine articles numbering more than 125, in both adult and children’s markets. I have experience as a keynote speaker and presenter at Young Writer’s Conferences around the state of Minnesota as well as school visits on various topics. I have taught After School Art Program classes. During these classes students wrote a children’s picture book and shared their story with the community. In Terri’s perfect dream world she would spend the day reading, writing, taking in her son’s ball games, playing with her grandbabies and going for daily walks.
