I wrote Madeline Mann back in 1994 or so. My son was a baby, and I was filling in my idle hours with some creative expression--my stab at a first mystery.
Now, more than twelve years later, Madeline has a face, thanks to U.K. artist Michael Frith and the great art department at Llewellyn Worldwide.
Maddy makes her print debut this summer, but her face will be visible long before that--starting here on the blog. Look for this lady in bookstores!
I'll post more about the book later on; it's a humorous mystery that takes place in Saugatuck, Michigan and the fictional Webley, Illinois. Madeline is a reporter, a woman who follows her vibes, and this makes her a natural for solving mysteries.
Let me know what you think of the Madeline art!
