Dr. Teri Crane is a writer, educator, and marriage and family therapist. Besides her own writing, (including a memoir, We Never Used the F Word, a novel, Base Ball: Coming to the Show, a recently completed historical novel, What the Women Carried West), and the completion of the haiku a day for a year challenge, Teri teaches creative writing. She volunteers this at a local Senior Center and teaches creative writing at the district Adult School. Teri also teaches History to teachers for LA County Office of Education. In her spare time in retirement, she is revising previously written novels, working on a new project, and continuing to spread the word that everyone has a unique story to tell.
