Author Biography

Terri Kelley, M.Ed, is the author of dozens of books for children and adults including the Writing is a Process series, the chapter book series Gingerly, as well as many others. 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 outside the city limits where she enjoyed riding horses and having lots of freedom to explore her environment. It was an idyllic childhood.

Terri is the mother of three adult children: Melynda, Jessica, and James. As they grew, each of her kids provided Terri with many fond memories which she incorporates into some of her writing. Now that they are adults, Terri enjoys her children’s successes and keeps in close contact with each of them.

In her life, Terri has held a couple of different careers. Her previous one was as a teacher, reading specialist, and gifted and talented specialist in Tomball, TX where she met and learned from some of the best educators and administrators that the world has to offer.

Education has always been important to Terri and, as a result, she has earned a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as completing over thirty hours towards a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. It was during her time spent teaching and earning her higher level degrees that she became aware of the kinds of books children enjoyed reading. She also noticed areas of life, education, and learning 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, and, of course, reading great books. They have many good friends and family with whom they enjoy spending time as well.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Editing: It's Time for Corrections (Writing is a Process) (Volume 4) by Terri Kelley is the fourth book in the series Writing is a Process. In this book, the author speaks about editing and how to make corrections in your writing. The young girl in the book thinks loudly on why she should edit her book.

It is an excellent book for parents, teachers, and children. It is important for adults to read this because it gives them an idea on how to guide children who are interested in putting down their thoughts on paper. The girl in the story tells you that first of all we should make sure all the spelling is correct. She recommends using a bright colored pencil to mark the mistakes. The book covers all the aspects of editing. The book can be used as a guide for children who are interested in writing stories.

I also liked the book for its color. Illustrations form a very important ingredient in children's books. The illustrations are vibrant and they make the words clearer for the reader to comprehend. The symbols for these editing actions are also given in the book. The book's educational theme makes it ideal for school libraries. It will help the teachers guide students to get into writing and how to work on improving their writing skills and writing a story on their own.
