Madalyn was brought up in a busy working class pub in the market town of Lutterworth in Leicestershire. The pub was a great place for an aspiring actress and writer to live. There were so many wonderful characters to study and accents learn. At twenty-four Madalyn gave up a successful hairdressing salon and wig-hire business for a place at East 15 Drama College, and a career as an actress.
In 2000, with fewer parts available for older actresses, Madalyn learned to touch type, completed a two-year creative writing course with The Writer’s Bureau, and began writing. After living in London for thirty-six years she has returned to her home town of Lutterworth, swapping two window boxes and a mortgage, for a garden and the freedom to write.
