About Me

DSCN1778

Welcome! I’m glad you could stop by.

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m passionate about what I do.

I’ve been writing since I was nine and so far I’ve finished one manuscript, I’m working on several more, and plotting many others.

I used to work as an aide at my local library, and had a short stint as a newspaper editor, but I know work as a freelance graphic designer.

I love to read, particularly fantasy. I’m a huge fan of Marissa Meyer, Stephen R. Lawhead, and Anne Elisabeth Stengl, among many others.

I’ve been blogging for nearly six years now, and I’ve had a blast doing it.

I love music, both playing and listening to it. I’ve been playing piano for thirteen years and I still occasionally get gigs from it. I listen to pretty much any and all genres of music out there. You name a genre, I probably have several favorites from it. Some steady favorites are Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, and Stray Kids.

Above all, I’m a firm believer in the Lord. Everyday I strive to draw nearer to him and reach others with his love for them.

Fast Facts:
• I taught myself to read.
• I was homeschooled all my life (which made college an adventure, ha).
• I wanted to be a veterinarian or a fashion designer when I was little. I guess a graphic designer is kind of like a fashion designer?
• I’m a pretty quiet, chill person if you meet me in real life, but there’s a lot going on under the hood.
• I live with my family in rural central Minnesota. Yes, it’s cold half of the year.
• I’m not a fan of chocolate and I’m allergic to dairy and nuts. Sad, I know.
• I’m an INFJ. Overthinking everything, ten thoughts at a time™
• If you wanna get into deep lore conversations about children’s shows and video games, I’m your girl.
• I secretly like musicals, but don’t tell anyone in real life.
• I’m very addicted to YouTube. It’s a problem.
• I love to swing dance! But I usually don’t have a partner, ha.

  4. Hey, I just stumbled (again, whoops. Forgetful me.) across your lovely blog, and I’d like to stick around! Also, we’re really, really similar! Homeschooled, piano, photographer, knows your library card number . . . *glances over shoulder suspiciously* Do you enjoy living in chilly MN? I’ve heard there’s a LOT of snow – is that true of where you are?
    Ooh, a rare unicorn! I’m an ENFJ, but I’m introverted at times.
    I hope you don’t mind if I hang around and pop up at random times. God bless!

    • Aww, I’m glad to hear that! ^_^
      Wow, we are really similar! …I SWEAR I’M NOT A STALKER. XD It is a very cold place, but I definitely wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Yes, there is a TON of snow. Much to my disdain. XD
      Haha, yep! 🙂 Ooh, cool! I haven’t met many ENFJs! 😀
      That is totally cool! I love it whenever people comment! I hope you enjoy my blog! ❤ May He bless you too! ^_^

      • Are you SURE?? Because I’m still not . . . XD What exactly do you love about Minnesota? Besides freezing, of course. Oh, that’s unfortunate. Ah well, we get used to our homes.
        I haven’t either, actually. A lot of my friends are introverted, and the extroverts are typically a little crazier than me. 😀
        Great! From what I’ve seen so far, I will. Thanks so much!

  6. Hi, Madeline! I’m Anika, if you didn’t know, and I live in Minnesota too. Our parents are actually good friends. 😀 Your mom was telling my mom about your blog and how you love to write and read and was astounded at how much we have in common (unfortunately I didn’t get to see you at all at your graduation party the other night, otherwise I would have loved to see and talk to you). I love your blog!!! It looks awesome! We are a TON alike, I’m actually really surprised. XD

    Anyway, that was a bit of a rant. Just wanted to let you know that you have a new stalker and fellow MN writer. 😉 ❤

    • Hi Anika! Oh, yes! My mom was telling me about you, and that you had a blog! That’s so crazy that we have a bunch in common! (Yes! I would’ve loved to talk to you, but…It was so chaotic. XD) Aww, thank you!!! I just recently redid it, actually! That is so awesome! I always love finding like-minded people! 😀

      Oh, please rant away. 😀 Haha, good to know! Well, you may have a new stalker as well! I found your blog and it looks SO gorgeous! I will definitely be slinking around there. ^_^

  7. Hey, I just realized we have a lot of fandoms in common! Everything Tolkien, Percy Jackson, Narnia stuff, yep, and I like Miraculous Ladybug (I don’t know why, it’s cute, plus I grew up with Sailor Moon which is what inspired that series). 😀

    I didn’t realize you live in a chilly place, too! I’m in freezing NH, and right now I am longing for spring but know it won’t get here until the end of May…*sniffle*

    • Ooh, how fun!! Tolkien is awesome, Percy Jackson is a more recent fandom, actually, and I’ve loved Narnia since I was a little girl. 😀 Haha, Miraculous, what can I say? It’s just plain fun! ^_^ (Ooh, that’s neat! I vaguely remember that show when I was little…I don’t think I ever watched though, sadly. 😛 )

      Yeah, it’s pretty frigid here. *shivers* Haha, oh yes. Spring is basically nonexistent here in MN, so I feel for you! XD
