Welcome to Considerate Malice, a publishing imprint of books co-authored by Crystal Crawford and M.J. Padgett.

Hi, everyone!

We're MJ and Crystal, and we're the authors behind Considerate Malice stories.


The concept of Considerate Malice is to produce stories that suck you in and get your pulse pounding... but with a promise to readers that it will all work out okay in the end. Usually. Or at least somewhat okay. Most of the time. Nothing's perfect, right? ;)


All the stories here on Considerate Malice are co-written by MJ Padgett and Crystal Crawford, and we both LOVE taking readers on crazy roller-coaster rides, so buckle up and hang on tight!


Fun fact: Crystal and MJ actually met through Wattpad, and co-wrote their first book entirely online without ever actually speaking to each other or meeting. Their first time to speak on the phone was the day that book won a Watty.


If you want news specifically on our collaborative books, please follow our Considerate Malice Facebook page!  We'll be posting updates there.   Feel free to also email us together at consideratemaliceauthors@gmail.com. We LOVE hearing from our readers!


You can find out more about each of our individual work at our separate websites or social media, and can even subscribe for our separate newsletters, where we'll be sending out monthly updates on our individual work as well as our collaborations!
