Kimberly Cross Teter

KIMBERLY CROSS TETER, a proud Texas native, is a teacher and traveler by nature and a writer by happy choice. She holds degrees from West Texas A&M University and has visited more than ten countries.

Her debut novel, ISABELLA’S LIBRETTO, is the result of an intriguing fact she learned in a music appreciation class several years ago. Not able to shake the image of orphan girls playing in an orchestra directed by Antonio Vivaldi, her curiosity eventually led her to Venice, and then to the creation of a fictional account of this amazing period of history.  ISABELLA’S LIBRETTO won the Bronze Medal in the YA/Juvenile category from the Illumination Awards and was recognized as a finalist for the Yerby Award.

Teter loves meeting readers and especially visiting schools to share Isabella’s story with students. She is now researching a fascinating slice of history involving hungry Italian POWs and the town in the Texas Panhandle that fed them. She lives in Franklin, Tennessee.
