Madison Parker grew up in Germany where she feasted on Gummibärchen, wandered through the woods on many a Volksmarch, and dreamed of one day living in a castle on a mountain with a boy who knew how to rock a pair of lederhosen. The Fates had other plans for her, but she’s not complaining.
Madison began writing LGBTQ fiction to help address issues of bullying and low self-esteem in our young adult populations. Madison’s short story, SOCK IT TO ME, SANTA!, explores one boy’s struggle to come out in a hostile school environment. Her debut novel, PLAY ME, I'M YOURS, takes the reader on an emotional journey in search of love and self-acceptance.
Ryan is assigned Jamie's name for their class's secret gift exchange. He wants to give Jamie the perfect gift because he feels bad about the way all the kids tease him for being gay. At least, he tells himself that's the reason. It couldn't be that he actually has feelings for Jamie, could it?
