Milly and the Tale from Across the Street is Martha’s debut book. If you asked Martha when she was in 4th grade what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have proudly stated, “Author!” In the meantime, she had lots of fun growing up in Duluth, Minnesota. She attended University of Colorado at Boulder then transferred to St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota to complete her degree in Exercise Science. She ran cross country and track throughout college and continues to enjoy running. A year after graduation, Martha married her college sweetheart, Dan.
