Hey there! My name is Madeline and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by!
Hello! If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m passionate. I am blessed to have wonderful parents who encourage me in all my creative endeavors, whatever they may be.
I love writing, I’ve been at it since I was nine and so far I’ve finished one manuscript and I’m working on two more and plotting many others. You can find out a little bit more about my projects on the Books page.
I work as an aide at my local library and I couldn’t imagine a better job. I get to be surrounded by books all day and talk to people who love books! What’s not to love?
I love to read. Books are one of the ways I escape from the world. I particularly enjoy any type of fantasy and some sci-fi and contemporary. My favorite authors include Marissa Meyer, Shannon Hale, Kate DiCamillo, Stephen R. Lawhead, Anne Elisabeth Stengl, and Heather Dixon.
I’ve been blogging for a little over four years now, and I’ve felt so welcomed into the blogging community. I love getting comments and interacting with my followers, so don’t be shy!
I also love music. I’ve been playing piano for nearly ten years now, and I had a short stint with the violin, which unfortunately didn’t become much of anything. I can still squeak out a tune, but not like on the piano. I also love listening to music. Soundtracks, classical, rock, alternative, 80s, my tastes vary drastically. Some of my all-around favorite artists are Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Owl City, Twenty One Pilots, Pentatonix, and Lindsey Stirling.
But above all of these things, I’m a child of the Lord. I’ve been serving Him for nearly seven years, and I’m still discovering new things everyday.
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
– 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
