Like many American children, Terri was raised on the myths and fairy tales of Europe -- on stories of wolves lurking in the woods, boys who pull swords out of stones, girls who travel on the backs of bears or swans or the fierce North Wind. She never out-grew these "children's" tales; rather, she seemed to grow into them, discovering their hidden depths as she grew older.
Terri began to divide my time between two different homes in two different lands: a 16th century cottage in Devon and a ranch-house retreat on the outskirts of Tucson. For 18 years she moved back and forth between them, migrating with the seasons . . . until, in 2008, she settled more permanently in Devon.
