My name is Mads, and I'm a twenty-five year old queer writer of LGBTQ YA literature. I graduated from SUNY Cortland class of '14 with a BA in English and a passion for the written word. I'm married to my wonderful partner, and together we raise our cat-daughter, Zack. I've been writing since high school and completed my first manuscript in 2016--a YA Fantasy--and my second in early 2018--a YA #ownvoices Contemporary with Horror elements. Both manuscripts are currently out on submission. When I'm not writing, I can be found volunteering at my local LGBTQ Youth center or binge-watching television.
