Hello friends, my name is Madeleine and I am incredibly lazy glamorous.
Ever since I was a sullen child of 8 I’ve adored writing in all its incarnations – dramatic, exclamation filled diary entries, pseudo-journalistic endeavors for small town weeklies and the disfigured, bastard child of the above- blogging.
I have a BA Sociology, with a concentration in Criminology, Deviance and Social Control.
I am addicted to commas and soft cheeses. My mind works faster than my hands, I often skip whole words and sometimes entire sentences. I don’t always catch this before hitting publish. Mea culpa.
I have a rare chronic kidney condition called Gitelman Syndrome and am currently campaigning to become its spokeslady. You can read more about the condition here.
In 2012 I had my daughter, a sweet, funny little girl named Olive. I wanted a hippie home birth but my sneaky placenta had other plans, and she was born via c-section on October 5, 2012. All ofmy posts about my pregnancy, and my c-section are found here. I will be blogging about some of my experiences as a mother, so if you object to hearing about potty training or sleep cycles you best run now.
I like to ramble about a variety of subjects, and sometimes I do this rambling in book form. My very first book was published April 2014, and I am so proud of it. It’s a funny little book of Eco-friendly recipes and tips, you can buy it here, or even better, ask them to order in a few copies at your local bookstore, and I would truly appreciate it.
Please feel free to email me with questions or comments, or to offer unsolicited advice on how to run my life.
