About the Author

Terri Kelley, M.Ed, is the author of many 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 a 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.

In her life, Terri has held a couple of different careers. Her previous one was as a teacher and reading specialist in Tomball, TX. It was there 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 Eugene, 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.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Healing Words by Terri Kelley is a beautiful collection of poetry that handles diverse emotions in everyday lives. The author's expressions in verse will give readers a better understanding of topics like happiness, joy, loss, death, friendship, breakup, relationships, divorce, health, and more. Each poem in the book has its own way of reaching out to readers with its words of joy and encouragement. The simple black and white illustrations enhance the effect and quality of the words. This inspirational collection will entertain readers with its simplicity and elegance in style and presentation. This collection is not only about human emotions but it also speaks about the bond between humans and pets. 'Ball of Fur' is one such poem which speaks about the love between dogs and humans. The poem 'Heartache' is a heart wrenching poem that will bring a few tears to the eyes of readers. Each poem strikes a chord because of its connection with the emotions which are relevant. The simplicity of words and stark images that accompany each poem make the collection a comforting read. I would recommend this collection to every reader, mainly because of the topics that the author has chosen. All are relevant themes which are easily relatable to readers. The depth, the emotions, and the understanding by the poet on these topics elevate the tone of the poems. Definitely a collection that all readers will enjoy.
