Author has written 16 stories for NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, House, M.D., Torchwood, and Sherlock.

Hi. My name is Maddie and I write stories. Sometimes they're good, sometimes they're not, but writing is a learning experience and I hope that you will forgive my mistakes.

Some things you should know about me: I'm a nerdy, slightly weird girl who loves God and her family. I also enjoy studying forensic science and criminal psychology. I'd love to be a writer one day. I love music, especially rock (AC/DC, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Guns n Roses, Triumph) and also grunge (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Green River, the Melvins, Citizen Dick-haha-Mother Love Bone, etc.) and country (Sugarland, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flats, Brooks and Dunn). I'm a literature nerd and a history geek. I dislike math but I love chemistry and biology. I enjoy writing perhaps a little too much, as I often devote my free time to working on stories instead of doing homework like I should. Horses are pretty much my life. I grew up riding and it's a huge part of me. I have an AMAZING Thoroughbred gelding who was retired from an unsuccessful racing career and found a new life as a hunter. He's the sunshine of my life. I'm sixteen.

Please read and review my writing. :) I desperately seek criticism but I dislike harsh flames (for obvious reasons).

TV shows I watch: NCIS, Castle, Southland, Sherlock, Supernatural, Doctor Who

Favorite movies: LOTR, Harry Potter (all of them), Singles
