Madge Gressley lives in Missouri with her granddaughter and two dogs (Pixie and Lily). An award winning artist for over 25 years, Madge decided to trade her paintbrush and canvas for paper and pen but, in this case—computer and keyboard—and started her writing career in 2013. She works from home where she squeezes writing in between jobs for her graphic design business and letting the dogs in and out—a full-time job in itself. Madge published her first book in the “Inescapable” series “The Beginning” in May of 2014, and the second book “Remembering” in June of 2014. Book three “Tomorrow,” made its debut July 2015.

A.D. Ellis is the author of two contemporary romance series, A Torey Hope Novel Series and Torey Hope: The Later Years. Her 2014 debut novel, For Nicky, was voted #3 of the Top 50 Indie Books of 2014 by ReadFree.ly readers/voters.

A.D. was born and raised in a small farming town in southern Indiana. An avid reader from the time she learned to read, A.D. could often be found curled up somewhere with her nose in a book. Most of her friends and family were not such book enthusiasts, so she got used to dealing with snickers and joking comments about her constant reading habits.
A.D. always dreamed of being a teacher. Graduating from Indiana State University in 1999 and earning a Master’s Degree from Indiana Wesleyan in 2003, she met her goal of entering the world of education. A.D. has been teaching in the inner city of Indianapolis, Indiana for 16 years; most of her years of experience have been in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. A.D. loves teaching fractions, variables, probability, and graphing in Math. She loves almost all aspects of English Language Arts. Figurative language, theme,
making predictions, drawing conclusions, inference, context clues, making writing come to life, A.D. loves it all! Her students don’t always share in that enthusiasm.
Ms. Ellis met her husband in college in 1996 and they married in June of 2000. She lives in a south side suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband, two school-aged children, and a hyperactive Yorkie named Snickers. When she’s not reading or writing with music blaring, she can be found shopping at thrift stores, reading to her children, and sweating at the gym.
A.D. began her writing journey in October 2013; she is grateful for the friends and support she’s found along the way.
