Madeline Smoot is the publisher of CBAY Books and former Editorial Director of Blooming Tree Press. In other words, Madeline knows a lot about publishing and the process of bringing a book to market. What Madeline has never been before is an author. Missing is her first book for teens.
Madeline lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, son, two cats, a dog, and more books than should fit in any normal person's house.
Just like their names, Liv and Morte have always been opposites. The two can barely be in the same room together for more than a moment before all conversations turn into fights. It's not until Morte disappears after a typical field party that Liv even realizes that she might actually love her unusual little brother after all.
