About the author:
For someone who loves to write, I never really know what to say about myself. I've lived a fairly "normal" American life, and I've been writing for about as long as I can remember. I started with stories about the origins of camels' humps and strange planets one could only travel to while riding a flying cat, and now I keep a blog of randomness, have now published two books, which though they are fiction tales, are quite based off my own middle and high school experiences. Inspired by my own ninth grade English teacher (the one who discovered that my love for writing might actually be a hidden talent), I too became a high school English teacher, a chapter in my life I very recently closed. I am blessed with an amazingly supportive husband and two beautiful and hilarious Australian shepherds. I have a love of good literature and words and a hatred of human trafficking. I hope to continue writing fun fiction, but I would also love to put my talent to use to help battle modern day slavery. Other than that, I enjoy running, or rather the benefits of running, singing in the car, and long walks on the beach (cliche added on purpose). Seriously, I do live in Florida, but a part of me always considers Virginia, where I spent middle school through college, as my home.

Memoirs of an Ordinary Girl: Fresh-meat Year
 

Authored by Terri Klaes Harper
Edited by Elle Klass, Diane Bixler

It's just another extraordinarily ordinary year in Drew Hotchner's world, and one she faces again with wit and sarcasm. Freshman year is the only thing that just might be more horrific and awkward than middle school, and Drew cannot avoid it. Thankfully, she is not alone and still has her support crew of friends, because some things never change, no matter the setting. Old enemies return and new distractions abound, such as a new crush, even while she holds onto the old, the advent of the grunge music movement, helping to plan a wedding, and the creepy neighbor boy down the equally creepy rural road. Drew must again learn to hold her own in the unknown and to stay true to her identity while also learning that doing the right thing is not always the easy thing and may take a degree of maturity a fourteen year old often doesn't realize she has.
