When Maddie is not reading or writing, she can be found crafting with her cat, Sushi, by her side.
Maddie earned her Bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University and her Master’s degree from North Carolina State University, each in English with a concentration in Film and Media Studies. During her studies, Maddie discovered that television is a legitimate art form and that watching TV is an act of research. She wrote her Master’s thesis on The Sopranos, and enjoys dissecting every text she comes across.
