Madeline Sloane

Madeline Sloane, a full-time writer and part-time college instructor, lives in the highlands of Pennsylvania with her husband, writer Joshua Sloane. Her educational background includes degrees in communication and anthropology, and she is a professional archaeologist.

After publishing several history books, she segued into fiction as an independent author. In addition to “Consequence,” her booklist includes “Distracted,” “East of Eaton” and “West Wind.” Her books are available in print and digital format at all major booksellers. Upcoming novels in the “Secrets of Eaton” series are “Incandescent” and “Dead Line.”

Many of her novels incorporate her passion for travel, sailing, history and archaeology. Most of her characters hail from Eaton, an imaginary locale in Pennsylvania she invented, but not all: some stories feature exciting and exotic cities the heroes (and their lovers) visit during the course of their romantic journey.

Sloane and her husband enjoy traveling to the U.K. and Europe, and spend much of their time abroad in ruins, castles, cathedrals and museums. She particularly enjoys exploring old churches (including the crypts with mummies), musty libraries and authentic pubs. In the U.S., the Sloanes bounce along the East Coast, traveling from New York to Florida to visit family and friends. The couple enjoys camping, hiking and kayaking, and always includes a geocache hunt and a trip to the local ice cream parlor.
