Hello there! I'm Madeleine. I've been writing short stories and essays for about fifteen years, but I've only recently begun to do so under my own name, which is very exciting.

As Malin James, my work has appeared in Electric Literature, Bust, MUTHA, Queen Mob’s Tea House, Cosmo UK, Thought Catalog and Medium, as well as in podcasts, blogs and genre anthologies. In my non-writing life, I read. A lot. Boy, I love to read....

I try to approach my work with compassion and curiosity, regardless of the subject. One of the best things about freelancing is bridging the gap between my clients and the world. I take my role in facilitating that connection seriously. After all, we’re all just trying to be understood.
