About the Author
Terri Klotz earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in education from Indiana University. After 32 years teaching literature and writing in the public schools, she decided it was time to drink her last cup of school coffee, say goodbye, and begin to practice what she'd preached. In the spring of 2013, she founded Creative Copy Indy, a boutique copywriting firm.
Because she missed helping students discover how the pieces of a well-crafted story come together to create meaning, Terri began working with Teacher's Discovery® in 2016 to create quality novel guides. Doing so, she says, has allowed her to sharpen her number 2 pencil once again and to dig into great pieces of literature in a way that will help students appreciate their beauty. Today she refers to herself as the luckiest teacher-turned-writer in the world.
