Stories like what to do when the boss’s dog dies the first night the dog is in your care. Or the ins and outs of moving. The importance of making friends. “Where You Go, I Will Go” spans all 31 years and 14 moves from her husband’s early years as a chaplain to his retirement in 2018.

The book was released May 2 on Amazon.com.

Terrinoni and her husband, Chaplain, Col. David Terrinoni, were stationed at Minot Air Force Base from 1998-2001. She worked as a freelance writer for The Minot Daily News her entire time in Minot. She covered happenings at the air base as well as other items of interest around the area. An entire chapter of her book is devoted to her time at Minot Air Force Base.

After retirement, Terrinoni and her husband put down roots in central Illinois. One of their twin daughters and her family live near them. The other daughter also married an airman, and they live in Delaware. The Terrinonis have four grandchildren whom they are spoiling in retirement.
