Mary Schulte has worked as a photo editor and children’s book reviewer at The Kansas City Star although her dream job would be to write for children all day! She has published nonfiction and fiction books including nine books with Children’s Press/Scholastic, 4 with KidHaven Press, and 1 with Mason Crest. She writes anything that pops into her head, so her magazine publications include a song, crossword puzzle, rebus, poetry, fiction and nonfiction for Ladybug, Whimsy, My Friend, Our Little Friend, Fun for Kidz, Highlights and Highlights High 5. If she could settle down and focus, she would love to finish her three w.i.p. novels whose characters keep pestering her about finishing their stories.
