Mary Ann Steinke-Moore,
Author of Books for Young People
Welcome! My name is Mary Ann Steinke-Moore and I am an author of young adult fiction. As a child I enjoyed book characters like Mary Lennox in Secret Garden who struggled and found a way through troubles to unexpected joy. These characters were like extra friends who shared their mistakes and solutions for problems I had, too.
By age ten I imagined characters and scenes and wrote stories of my own—often horse stories. Now my stories involve much more than horses, but there is still a constant. The characters in my novels discover ways to grow through the sorrows and joys of their lives, and I hope young readers find healing friendship from knowing them.
