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.

Reviewed by Darin Godby for Readers' Favorite

Children should be raised with the love of parents that instills within them hope, values, and understanding. Yet those same children ask all types of tough questions, such as: "Where is God and why can't I see His face if it is true that He is everywhere watching over me?" Author Terri Kelley paints a very vivid picture of deep questions that children are prone to ask their parents.

Have you ever been asked those tough questions from a child and wondered how you were going to respond? Where Is God? is a simple yet powerful book for children. At the same time, it offers adults an avenue of dealing with those difficult questions in a friendly way. Author Kelley does a wonderful job of explaining this question through the views of a mother. This mother's view helped her young son understand that God can be seen, felt, and experienced everywhere if one would just take the time to listen, look, and experience who He is. God desires to make Himself real to children and adults alike if we will just slow down and allow Him to speak to us.

This book enables readers to understand how big God truly is, yet how close He desires to become to each of us. Author Kelley and illustrator Milena Radeva do a wonderful job in allowing readers to hear as well as envision the story as it unfolds right before their eyes. Church and school libraries and bookstores should consider this an additional resource for families.
