Mary Bleckwehl

Mary Bleckwehl was born in Iowa and raised on a big farm family. As a student and a teacher, she learned that imagination was the magical ingredient that could be stirred into life’s experiences to create something fresh. Bleckwehl is the author of three picture books, including Claire’s Hair, a Midwest Book Award winner. She makes her home in Minnesota where the winter is perfectly long to get a lot of writing done.  Look for Mary's new middle grade novel Finding SAM to arrive in Spring 2021 from One Elm Books.
