Martha worked as a newspaper reporter, copy editor, substitute teacher, college lecturer, advertising copywriter and magazine writer before finding her true calling as a writer of children’s books. She has since written 31 books for children of all ages.
Fun facts: Martha has not owned a working television in 35 years. Martha is mostly a vegetarian but makes an exception on Thanksgiving. She always remembers to thank the turkey. One of Martha’s few talents is making piecrust. On good days, Martha writes a poem before breakfast (but after coffee). Martha’s favorite book is War and Peace. No, she did not write that one.
