About Me

headshot    Writer of Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Madeline Rue began writing as a teenager after moving to Los Angeles. It was her way of preserving a childhood spent swimming, climbing trees, befriending animals, reading comics, and drawing imaginary worlds. She later studied Theater Arts, earned a B.A. in Creative Writing, completed the UCLA Writers’ Program, and joined SCBWI. Drawn to abandoned buildings and places reclaimed by nature, she mixes these elements into the fiction she creates.

Currently, she lives in Los Angeles with her growing family.
