About Madeline

How did you start reading romances? I grew up in a family of women who traded large brown grocery bags full of them.  Naturally, as a teen I started diving into the bag myself.

As a new adult, I worshipped Georgette Heyer. I secretly wrote out 130 Heyer-esque romance plots (just for fun).  Then one day I found out about the brave new world of erotic romance…My life did a 180 degree turn. I left my day job and began writing romances full time.

I love writing about brooding heroes who aren’t intimidated by intelligent, strong women. I love writing about that point in a relationship where strong trust leads to total surrender and scorching hot sex.

Enjoy reading about romance & smexy fun daily? Check out my group blog  LADY SMUT.

A proud member of RWA and Washington Romance Writers, I organize “LOVE FEST” a free day of romance panels at Virginia Festival of the Book. Check out this year’s line-up here.

I’m a total teaching dork.  I used to be a college professor in fact, with many years of teaching under my belt.  I am happy to share my knowledge with your romance chapter about any of these topics:

  • It Starts with Story: Building Story Muscle By Learning To Pitch Your Book
  • From Blog to Book: Build Your Romance Career Through Platforming
  • The Public Author: Professional Tips For Appearing in Person
