My name is Maddie. I’m a 25-year-old New Englander and youth services librarian making my way in the world. While I got into librarianship because I like reading to crowds in funny voices and generally making a fool of myself to the delight of children, the proximity to thousands of incredible books is a wonderful bonus.
As a child, I was fortunate to have parents who read with me constantly. My dad and I read all fifty-six Nancy Drew books together before I finished elementary school. I’ve always been a huge nerd for mystery books, but I also love sweeping fantasy epics, memoirs, and, most recently, comics and graphic novels of all types.
When I’m not reading, writing, or librarian-ing, I am usually watching bad reality TV, lifting heavy stuff, or procrasti-baking. I live in a little house near the sea with my fabulous partner Kelsey and our tiny, badly-behaved cats, Rory and Morrigan.
Thank you for going on this journey with me–I can’t wait to get started!
