About Me

mypicture.jpg

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

~ A Few Fun Facts ~

○ I was walking by nine months, and I taught myself to read.

○ My favorite subjects in school were English and history.

○ I was also homeschooled all my life.

○ I really wanted to be a veterinarian when I was younger. That, or a fashion designer.

○ I never wear makeup, except for special occasions. It annoys my face.

○ I’m quiet when you first meet me, but once I’m comfortable with you, I’m a sarcastic know-it-all. I tend to show very little emotion, but when I do, it’s really intense. Get to know me at your own peril.

○ Autumn is the best season.

○ I love teal and red (hence the color scheme).

○ I’m 5’4″.

○ I have three younger siblings, one brother and two sisters.

○ I also have a dog named Birdie and a cat named Kitty. And I call myself creative.

○ I don’t like chocolate. Shocking, I know.

○ I’m horrible at making decisions, mostly because I overthink everything.

○ I’m a full-blooded INFJ. Which means I’m basically a unicorn.

○ So far, I belong to eleven fandoms; Marvel, Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, the Lunar Chronicles, Disney, Pixar, Merlin, Psych, Undertale, Michael Vey, Miraculous Ladybug, and Percy Jackson. More are sure to follow.

○ I’m kind of addicted to Pinterest.

○ I know my library card number by heart.

○ I’m a geek. And I’m okay with that.

  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!

    1. 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! ^_^

      1. 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. 😉 ❤

    1. 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. ^_^
