Madeline Claire Franklin has been writing, making movies, telling lies, and otherwise creating stories for as long as she can remember. She holds a BA in Media Studies/Production with a minor in Anthropology from the University at Buffalo, where she further expanded her storytelling capacity.
In addition to her love of telling stories and researching dead people, Madeline is an avid traveler and lover of foreign cultures. She has contracted salmonella in Costa Rica, and was bitten by a goat in the Sahara Desert; her pants once caught on fire while she was walking down a street in Spain, and she got the saltiest water in the world in her eyes when she swam in the Dead Sea. None of this deters her.
Currently she lives in Buffalo, New York with a small menagerie of pets.

This short story was well written and imaginative. It also pulled on my heartstrings and left me feeling a bit sad. I do recommend it as a good read.
