HI, I’m Maddy.
I never could resist a happy ending, from fairy tales as a child to romance novels and classic movies. They were my bread and butter.
So it only made sense that when I took up a pen I would write romance. Contemporary romances, with smart, sassy women and powerful, sexy men. My settings are Chicago, a town of love, one that is fun to explore and to write about. I use real settings, then add extra glamour, a billionaire or two, hot sex and romance, romance, romance.
I have always loved immersing myself in stories, reading late into the night that novel I just couldn’t put down. As a kid, I recruited my friends and we acted out the stories I was reading, bringing them to life as best we could. I did the usual, college with a degree in Journalism, MBA, years of working for corporate America, before returning to my first love – books.
I have tons of ideas for stories and books. So far, so good – the Beguiling Bachelor series continues to unfold while I work on other series that I plan to share down the road.
I love cats. I usually have one or two helping me type – or taking a nap while I do the work. I love Chicago, its art fairs, its beaches, its culture and its cuisine, from the elegant to street food. And chocolate. I hate exercise, but a stroll down Michigan Avenue or through the Art Institute don’t count as a workout.
