I began writing at an early age. While in grade school, I was the recipient of two Young Author Awards (1994, 1997). In high school, I became the only freshman member of the yearbook staff where I took my own photographs and wrote stories about the happenings at Freeburg High.

I went on to receive my Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications-Print Journalism from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. While there, I earned the Outstanding Student in Journalism award in 2006. I am the former Editor of The Fairview Heights Tribune as well as the Clinton County News in Mascoutah, IL.

I have written numerous articles and feature stories that have been included in the above mentioned papers as well as The Freeburg Tribune and the Mass Communicator magazine for Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Priceless Penny is the second book that I have written. My first book is a collection of poetry entitled More Than Words that was published in 2010. In 2015, I created her own publishing company called Theuerkauf’s Tails, LLC. I am an active member of SCBWI, 12×12 Picture Book Challenge, Women’s National Book Association, and the Dog Writers Association of America.  I also contribute to and edit articles for the Pets for Patriots Wet Nose blog.
