Mary Wissinger was born in Wisconsin where she spent most of her childhood singing, reading, and daydreaming. She dove into storytelling through acting and writing (and writing and writing).
While spending time as a classroom teacher sharing the magic of music, she saw firsthand the incredible life-changing power of stories. The stories children read become the stories they play, and then the stories they tell.
Mary can now be found at her standing desk in St. Louis, MO, writing stories that inspire curiosity about the world and connection with others. (But don't worry, she still sings with the Saint Louis Symphony Chorus.)
Recent projects include "My First Science Textbook", a series of hilariously scientifically accurate chemistry stories for kids, and Science Wide Open, a picture book series celebrating the world-changing contributions of female scientists. They are both in the top 10 of Children's Publishing Projects on Kickstarter.
