The Author

Madeline Claire Franklin has been writing, making movies, telling lies, and otherwise creating stories for as long as she can remember. She holds a BA in Media Studies/Production with a minor in Anthropology from the University at Buffalo, where she further expanded her storytelling capacity.

In addition to her love of telling stories and researching dead people, Madeline is an avid traveler and lover of foreign cultures. She has contracted salmonella in Costa Rica, was bitten by a goat in the Sahara Desert, and her pants once caught on fire while she was walking down a street in Spain. None of this deters her.

Currently she lives near the zoo in Buffalo, New York with her three cats, (Luke, Leto, and Lando) and her husband. They can hear the sea lions barking all year round.

Madeline can be contacted by email at

    I think your illustrations are wonderful… especially the trees; they look alive. And Elizabeth at the ball…so perfect!
