Mary Bleckwehl believes words matter. As a children’s writer she uses them to challenge readers to not just imagine a better world but to take action to make it so. Passionate about promoting literacy, Bleckwehl works to inspire young readers and writers to dream big and look for opportunities to take on challenges that will expand their awareness of the complex world they live in.

Bleckwehl grew up in an Iowa farm home with few books but a trove of experiences that are the foundation of her writing. As a writer, she draws on those farm kid experiences as well as her years of parenting and teaching. Bleckwehl’s three award-winning picture books, Henry you’re late AGAIN! Henry you’re hungry AGAIN? and Claire’s Hair showcase the humor and empathy she sees in children. She craves variety and thus writes non-fiction and for the middle grade audience as well. The Birthday Cookbook released in 2021 and is Bleckwehl’s fun and easy recipe book for kids who enjoy spending time in the kitchen. Her debut middle grade novel, The Worry Knot (January release) and four non-fiction books (in the Awesome Disgusting Careers series, September release) are available for readers in 2022.

Bleckwehl graduated from Wartburg College and received her M.S. in Educational Management from Lesley University in Boston. She lives in Northfield, Minnesota where she taught school. Together with her husband, she raised three children, a few unruly pets, and plenty of garden weeds. When she’s not dreaming up a new book idea, Bleckwehl can be found presenting to book lovers in schools, libraries and conferences or enjoying a peaceful pontoon ride with family.
