Maribeth earned a B.A. from the University of Northern Iowa and an emergency medical technician certification from Hawkeye Institute of Technology. She has worked as a preschool teacher, a substitute teacher, an instructor at the University of Iowa Summer Writing Festival, and a free-lance writer. Maribeth has authored over 35 children’s books, with more forthcoming.

Maribeth grew up where reading was a priority at home, and she loved spending long hours at the library every Saturday. She has written stories since kindergarten and believes, “Every life is a story, isn’t it?” “Most of my stories originated from raising children, and now, through playing an active role in the lives of our little grandchildren. As a long-time volunteer with children and teens, I’ve never ceased to be amazed by the deep, perceptive, and optimistic way they interpret the world. Kids, as always, inspire me!”

Maribeth lives in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She and her late husband, who was a firefighter and her best friend, have three children and four grandchildren. She deeply appreciates family, children, books, and nature. Maribeth believes nature is where healing and creative ideas can be found, and she enjoys woody trails, being on the river, watching a sunrise or sunset, and beekeeping.
