THOMPSON

Madigan

GROWING UP NEAR the majestic mountains of Utah, with its snowy peaks and mysterious waterfalls, Madigan Thompson was inspired to write about the daring adventures of mighty heroes and their fantastical lands. Writing middle-grade and YA fantasy and sci-fi, Madigan loves to craft stories of found family, hope, and perseverance through life’s trials.

When she is not writing, you can find Madigan bringing her imagination to life through the art of her characters, binging shows with her dad, or filling her bookshelves with literary treasures such as Tolkien, Lewis, and Andrew Peterson.

Until one day, when a carriage crashes into her life, and the people inside shake her small world...
