--And much more

About the Author

I was born in Jacksonville, Florida, where I wrote my first book of fiction (a story about a king who was tired) when I was five years old and sold it to the neighbors so I could get money for ice cream. Since then, I've been a newspaper reporter, a columnist for Working Mother magazine, a freelance writer, the author of three non-fiction humor books about parenting-and now, at last, as the author of several novels, writing as Maddie Dawson.
