Mary Martsching – Hostess & Author

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!

About thehopebeacon

Wecome to my blog! I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandmother who wants to share my lifetime experiences with those who share the same interests and roles. I served as an educator for twenty-one years as both a classroom teacher and an Instructional Services Consultant. Most recently I chose to write children's books. This new path as an author led me to create this website. I seek to inspire, uplift, encourage, and advise those who come here who share common interests or life experiences as myself.

    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?

    Thank you!

    It’s always useful to read through content from other writers and
    use a little something from other sites.
