Author Biography

Terri Kelley, M.Ed, is the author of the series of Writing Is a Process books, many other children’s picture books, as well as of the chapter book series, Gingerly. Her passion for writing and reading began when she was a very young girl. She was raised in Copperas Cove, Texas where she grew up in the country with horses and lots of freedom to explore her environment. It was an idyllic childhood that allowed her to use her imagination daily.

Terri is the mother of three. Terri raised her kids in Granbury, TX and Tomball, TX. Both of these communities offered excellent schools and a country atmosphere that Terri enjoys. Terri still has ties to both towns as well as treasured friends in both places.

As an adult, Terri has held a couple of different careers. After twenty successful years in business-to-business sales, Terri decided to change careers and teach. Her first teaching job was with Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District in Houston, TX. After a few years there, she became a teacher, a reading specialist, and a gifted and talented specialist in Tomball, TX. It was while she taught that she became aware of the kinds of books children enjoyed reading. She also noticed areas in need of good children’s books. You will find many of her books respond to these needs.

Terri is very happily married to her best friend, Michael. Together, they live in Oakridge, OR with their black Labrador, Oliver. Terri and Michael enjoy traveling together, fishing, going to the movies, treasure hunting (at garage sales and thrift stores), and, of course, reading great books. They have many good friends with whom they enjoy spending time as well.

He's All Over the Place! by Terri Kelley is a delightful story for children. The story revolves around a young boy who gets a new pup as his pet. He tries to think of a suitable name for the pup and none seem to fit. The little pup shows all the sides of his personality with his naughty antics and funny behavior. Finally, the boy realizes that the name he wants for the pup is right in front of him and he does not have to go searching for it. All pet lovers will be able to connect to this story.

Terri Kelley comes up with another wonderful book for children here. Like the rest of her books, the illustrations are bright, colorful, and they breathe life into the characters portrayed. They always take the story to another dimension. The illustrations are endearing enough to attract a child to read the beautiful story. The illustrations and the story complement each other perfectly, making this book a winner. The story also encourages children to observe their surroundings carefully. The antics of the puppy also give a lot of joy and cheer to young readers. School libraries should have books like this because these stories are ideal in not only introducing children to the joys of reading but also to new concepts and educational things.
