Writer, editor, illustrator, professional optimist.

I’m a handshaker. I have a cat but am in no way a cat person. I yell at people in my car, often. I eat very slowly. My name is Madison, and I’m very glad that you’re here.

I was born in South Carolina, raised in St. Louis and — after much traveling in between –now call Birmingham, Alabama home. I’m in love with a lot of things, one of them being my wonderfully supportive and brilliant husband, David. Another of them being my cat, Milo. Yet another of them being life.

I hope you stick around for a while.
