Madeleine White was born in Germany, with roots in Canada and the UK. Her 25 year career has spanned journalism, teaching, educational technology and publishing. As a publisher she has created national and international web and print magazines aimed at creating a voice for those without one. A notable example of this is the successful Nina-Iraq, a project that she worked on with the World Bank to reach out to Iraqi women everywhere.
These days, Madeleine is a ‘storyteller’ consultant, working with educational technology companies and international development partners to connect diverse cultural, geographical and digital communities. Her debut novel, Mother of Floods, has been inspired by the growing belief that fiction is often more powerful than factual journalism in opening us up to truth.
Madeleine is married with three children and lives in Broadstairs, a small coastal town in England.
