Hello! Welcome to my website. My name is Mary Martsching, and my goal is to encourage you on this site.
Born and raised in Burlington, Iowa, I loved living on the Mississippi River and watching steamboats, barges, and speed boats pulling skiers up and down the water. Trains crossed our river via a swinging railroad bridge and ran through our town daily all day and night.
Though I was a city girl, I married a farm boy and eventually lived on a farm in Yarmouth, Iowa. I learned to appreciate the process of farming from planting to harvesting. How fulfilling to watch something you create comes to full fruition!
I taught middle school, elementary school, and worked as an area education agency consultant. In the last position I modeled reading strategies for teachers in their classrooms. I also worked with special education teachers about behavioral and academic concerns.
Now I write mysteries and adventure stories for children ages 8-12. This new adventure includes creating this website and writing these posts to develop new relationships with those with similar experiences, values, and interests.
Again, thank you for joining me, and I hope you become part of this adventure!

Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform
like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options
out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?
This is really attention-grabbing, You are a very professional blogger.
I have joined your feed and look ahead to searching
for more of your fantastic post. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks
Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
It’s always useful to read through content from other writers and
use a little something from other sites.
