About the Author


Terri is living on five rural acres and slowly building it into a thriving organic farm. Although she grew up in the city, today she prefers a natural country life with her significant other and young daughter. By managing a freelance writing career from home, she can spend most of her time outdoors tending to both garden and livestock, which has given her a great deal of hands-on experience that she treasures. Not only has she gleaned her knowledge from experience, but also she has learned from the numerous helpful neighbors who seem to constantly have tips and suggestions to offer. Eventually, Terri hopes to be more self-sufficient and produce most of her own food. When not in the garden or barnyard, she studies genealogy and collects antique typewriters."
