About Madelyn

Aka Mary Madelyn Bennett Edwards

Aka Maddy


I’m a big believer in education, probably because I fought so hard to get one.  I went to beauty school and put myself through college cutting hair, graduating at 38-years-old, a single mom with two children.  I recently earned an MA in Writing at 60+ years old and have written several books.
