Author & Illustrator
In a log home high on a bluff in rural Wisconsin, Terri Reiland writes her books. As a public health nurse, she is honored to connect with the emotional peaks and valleys of others' lives --- the pregnancies, the births, the deaths, the illnesses, the recoveries. With a family of six, entertainment is home grown in books, music, nature and loved ones. Terri is the author of the Holding On books and We’ve Been So Thrilled to Fill Our Lives with You, and the author and illustrator of Letters from Home.
A self-taught artist, Gail Pommerening expresses her God-given talent in pastel paintings subtly touched with a feeling of soft romance. Her work is inspired by all things in nature, but Gail is especially fond of the birds and wildlife that reside in the rolling woodlands surrounding her home. Gail and her family live on a small farm near the scenic town of Plum City, Wisconsin. Gail's subject versatility has led to nationwide sales of original art and limited edition prints. Gail is the illustrator of the Holding On books.
