Mary Halverson Schofield


I have written three books:
River of Champions (nominated for the Minnesota Book Award)
Henry Boucha: Star of the North
Optioned a screenplay
Written a second screenplay
Working on a young adults novel

I graduated from the University of New Mexico and did graduate work at the University of New Mexico and University of California.

I have taught public school in New Mexico, Minnesota, Illinois, and California and parochial school in Wisconsin.

My home is Minnesota, am married and have two children.

Over the years I have written poetry for myself and writing classes and am finding myself writing more poetry as it is a marvelous form of writing for expressing oneself and ones feelings.

A true, against-all-odds story about common teen-aged boys whose single goal, and the path to reach it, turned them into extraordinary young men. It is a heart-warming story of desire, grit, and determination of boys who dare to attempt the impossible dream.
