About Me

headshot    Writer of young adult science fiction and fantasy.

Madeline Rue began writing when she moved to Los Angeles, California as a teenager after spending a childhood of swimming, climbing trees, adopting stray pets, reading comics, and drawing imaginary worlds in Central California.  Although she once wrote B movie scripts to entertain her friends and received a BA in Creative Writing , it was not until later, with much encouragement, she began working on full-length novels. Drawn to abandoned buildings and places reclaimed by nature, she lets these elements mix in with her out-of-the ordinary life experiences and the fiction she creates.

Madeline Rue earned a Fiction Writing Certificate from UCLA Writers’ Program as well as a Copyediting Certificate from UCSD Extension. Living in Los Angeles, she is a current member of SCBWI.
