About the Author

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.

Terri is the mother of three. Her kids are all grown now and living happy and responsible lives of their own. 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 friends in both places.

As an adult, Terri has held a couple of different careers. Her first teaching job was with Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District in Houston, TX. Her next one was as a teacher and reading 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, and, of course, reading great books. They have many good friends with whom they enjoy spending time as well.

Children always make excuses when it comes to bedtime. They come up with many pretexts so that they can stay up late, but then find out that their parents are not going to let them sit up. It is always challenging for parents to set a strict bedtime for their kids so that they grow up in a healthy environment and wake up fresh and energetic the next day. And children always make the lives of their parents difficult when it comes to sleeping on time. Do you have a tough time putting your kids to bed? If so, this book can be very helpful. Terri Kelley's books are perfect for kids because they always have either an educational theme, good concept or a message for kids. She knows the pulse of child readers. They are also highly captivating because of the colorful illustrations that make the story and the concept clear to children. This book will make a perfect bedtime story for kids and can also be used for read-aloud sessions in classrooms and kids' libraries. The child in this story is adorable and many kids and parents will be able to easily relate to her antics to stay awake. The theme is so simple and relatable but put across by the author beautifully to make it really interesting to children.
