Meet The Author
M. J. Padgett is first and foremost a mom. Her free-spirited kindergartner has quite the vivid imagination, and her antics sometimes find their way into her mommy’s work. She is a lover of all things chocolate, a Grimm and Dickens addict, a self-proclaimed smarty-pants, and an introvert to the core.
M. J. has a Master’s degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management. While in college, M. J. worked as a veterinary technician at an emergency practice in upstate South Carolina. She then relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, where she worked as a hazardous waste inspector for the state. After her child was born, she became a full-time stay-at-home mom and writer. MJ currently resides in Savannah, Georgia with her husband and daughter.
Writing is her true passion (after raising her daughter, of course), and she writes as often as possible. One of her favorite things about writing is creating a world where people can escape reality for a little while, maybe even walk away feeling hopeful about the real world around them. When it comes to reading, she loves a book that can make her forget where she is no matter the genre. If she can get lost and feel like the characters are her real friends, she’s a happy reader.
