Interview
Alice: Thanks for joining us today, Madeline.  Can we begin by having you tell us how you got into the YA paranormal genre?

Madeline:  I’ve always loved a good ghost story, so when I moved to New England I decided that I’d go ahead and take a ghost hunting class.  I was obsessed with all of those shows on TV, so I figured it would be fun.  As it turned out, it scared the hell out of me.  Not so much the whole, dead Aunt Mary hanging out on the staircase part, but the demons in the attic part.  

By the last week of class, sleep and I were no longer on speaking terms.  So I decided to go ahead and try and write a novel about all of my worst fears and the book was born. 

Alice: Is writing what you’ve wanted to do all your life? 

Madeline:  Yes and no.  I originally wanted to grow up and be the ruler of a small country, but that hasn’t really worked out.

I’ve been writing all of my life, so it’s become a part of me more than a profession, per se.

Alice: I would love to know more about your character, May Krieg.  Would you like to tell us about her?

Madeline:  She’s a teen who feels a bit like an outsider. She lives in a wealthy suburb and she’s the girl who has to shop at second-hand stores and doesn’t have the money to drop on weekly manicures and things, but she’s quirky and always the first to volunteer to work at a soup kitchen or make lunch for the homeless. 

She’s also a bit na├»ve and can be a bit too quick about drawing up assumptions about people.  That being said, even though she’s not in with the popular kids, she’s extremely devoted to the friends that she does have and would walk through fire for the people she cares about. 

Alice: Who is Jack?

Madeline:  He’s the “it” boy.  He’s got the money and the looks and the charm to rule the world.

But on the inside he’s broken.  His mother has passed away and his dad is never around, and throws money at him in the hopes that it will replace any actual parenting that he should be doing.  He’s left to his own devices all the time, so he has become very self-sufficient but also a bit cold on the outside.  He’s slow to warm up to people because on the inside he’s worried that they’ll just abandon him the way his parents have.

Alice: What are you working on now?

Madeline:  The sequel to DAUGHTER OF THE FALLEN.  The book ends on a hook so I have to make sure readers aren’t left in the dark for too long!

Alice: Is there anything you’d like to say to your fans and readers?

Madeline:  Thank you so much for reading!  I love hearing from readers, so please feel free to reach out!

Alice: Thank you very much for your time!
