Madeline is one of those rare birds - a California native. She’s lived in Southern California her whole life and loves it (except for the earthquakes). She married her high school sweetheart, and they have three sons, all handsome enough to be cover models!
Madeline never intended to be a published author. It just happened. She has always loved to read. The Black Stallion books, Lad, a Dog, Nancy Drew, Mary Stewart. And then she discovered romance novels. One night, when her husband was at work, her kids were in bed, and there was nothing on TV, she sat down and started writing a historical romance of her own. After six years and 31 rejections, she finally found a publisher for RECKLESS HEART, and she’s been writing ever since.
Madeline also writes paranormal romances under the name Amanda Ashley.
She readily admits that most of her vampire heroes are inspired by Frank Langella’s portrayal of Dracula.
As of this writing, she has published 33 historical romances, 4 Silhouette Romances, 23 paranormal romances, and 11 short stories. Not bad for someone who started writing just for the fun of it. Her books have made the New York Times Bestseller List, the USA Today Bestseller List, and the Borders and Waldenbooks Bestseller lists.
