About Me

headshot    Writer of Young Adult Horror, 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 and copyediting, earned a B.A. in Creative Writing, completed the UCLA Writers’ Program in Fiction Writing, and joined SCBWI. She has won numerous contests through SCBWI and one from the Futuristic, Fantasy, & Paranormal RWA.

Drawn to abandoned buildings and places reclaimed by nature, she mixed these elements into the fiction she creates. Environmental issues and animal welfare are huge concerns that also find their way into her stories.

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