Introduction My "Official" Bio: After eleven co-authored books with husband, Jim, Terri Kraus has added her award-winning interior designer’s eye to her world of fiction. She comes to her latest, the Project Restoration series, naturally, having survived the remodel, renovation, and restoration of three separate personal residences, along with those of her clients. She makes her home in Wheaton, Illinois, USA, with her husband Jim, son Elliot, miniature schnauzer Rufus, and Siberian cat Petey. Terri has traveled extensively internationally, and has relished visiting countless historical building sites everywhere she goes. She taught Interior Design at the college level for eight years, and directed women’s ministries at her church for six years. Terri is passionate about her Christian faith and women's issues, and leads a neighborhood Bible study. She enjoys all things Italian, and all things British. Her book club is in its fourteenth year of meeting monthly. Other interests include photography, music, cooking and baking and exploring the city of Chicago.
