A writer and an editor with a broad range of interests, Teri has a taste for exploration and a talent for bringing back stories and information that resonate with insight and wonder—whether she’s examining flowers, pie, or small-town life. She has over 30 books in publication, including two that were named to amazon.com’s “Best Books of 2013.” She’s also enjoyed a long and fruitful career in magazine publishing, website content/blogging, and direct marketing—her experience and expertise in these areas has been an asset for diverse clients. Her vivid catalog copy once won the industry’s highest award.

She’s available for presentations based on her books. More information…
