Terra Pries

Growing up in a military family, Terra Pries moved frequently and discovered a valuable hobby in reading and learning to use her imagination. She has always enjoyed writing, and as a teacher of ten years was looking for ways to inspire the love of reading in her students, as well as fostering creativity and the enjoyment of writing. To this end she began to write a story for her students, reading them the chapters as they were written and engaging them in the process of determining what worked in the story and what did not. This fun and educational activity turned into a joint effort with her class and eventually grew into a whole book and the result has been a great learning experience and sense of accomplishment for everyone.
