John Schreiber teaches language arts and directs theater at Triton Senior High School.

He has written seven books, directed over 140 plays, had three one-act plays perform at the State One-Act Festival, written two plays, serves on the MSHSL one-act advisory committee, and was finalist for MN Teacher of the Year.

His novels fall into several genres: 1) epic fantasy: the Heartstone series; 2) suspense/mysteries set in Minnesota: the Ironwood County series: Catching the Stream, Life on the Fly, and Passing Through Paradise), 3) the YA coming of age novel Hillcrest Journal; and 4) a metafictional mix of everything: his collection of short stories Tales from 2 A.M, and the Irregulars series. All books are available through any bookstore or on-line. Some may also be checked out of the Triton High School library.

Sorry, students, no extra credit for choosing to read them over other novels.
