About the Author
Madelyn Conley is from a very small town in Indiana. She has two sisters who are her all-time best friends and biggest fans. Conley’s parents are her support and guidance. She wouldn’t be who she is without them. Conley is quite the loner, but she loves her friends and family so much, as they are the only ones who truly understand her. Though introverted, Conley’s heart is huge. She loves people, loves to listen and be a shoulder for everyone. Her favorite hobbies include writing, singing, drawing, and painting. She started writing when she was in eighth grade, after she was bullied and had met her first heartbreak. Writing was her escape, paper is her only therapist. Conley says, “Poetry is my way of coping and an outlet. I realized it was my therapy and without it, I wouldn’t be able to share it with you. I want others to know that poetry will be your therapist when you feel that there is no one else. Let the pen spill its ink, you will feel 100 times better.”
