Terri Whiting

Terri works full time as a Physician Assistant in San Diego, CA. She raised two sons and is now a proud grandmother of three.
It has always been a dream of hers to write children's books. Now that she has grandchildren, it seemed like the perfect time to make her dream come true. 

The first book she wrote, Angel Marie Has VERY BIG Ears! is about her miniature white schnauzer that no one wanted.

She was her loving companion for over 15 years. Terri decided to write a children's picture book about her story in hopes  that children learn that it is OK to be different and to accept themselves as they are. 

​Her other children's picture book is a series:

The Littlest Angel Learns To Fly, Awarded the GOLDEN AWARD winner of Mom's Choice Awards! 

The Littlest Angel Meets New Friends​

Due April 2020:

The Littlest Angel And His Halo

The Littlest Angel series teach courage, determination and most importantly, faith in God in a very gentle and meaningful way.

​A portion of her book sales go directly to a local family in need or a nonprofit foundation.
