Madeline has always lived in Melbourne. She is emotionally allergic to spontaneity, and yet doesn't mind the weather that drags her into rain when she's planned for sunshine. She likes to call this her wild side.

She's a Virgo, vegetarian, and once had a romantic suspense style dream in which the hero was a shredded lettuce sandwich and the villain was a cherry tomato. The tomato got away. She took the dream as a sign that she'd better stick to writing contemporary romance.

Madeline is blessed with two sisters, one older, one younger. She knows her family would carry her to the end of the earth and back, because they've done so a few times already. This has inspired her to bolster the romance in her novels with the love of family.

She writes romance because she's in a long-term relationship with the genre and writing such stories makes it happy. Her latest book Love and Other Lies is out now.

Take a look at the books that have influenced Madeline.
