When independent writer Madison Johns began writing at the age of forty-four, she never imagined she'd have three books in her Agnes Barton Senior Sleuths mystery series make it onto the USA Today Bestsellers list. Sure, these books are Amazon bestsellers, but USA Today?

Although sleep-deprived from working third shift, she knew if she used what she had learned while caring for senior citizens to good use, it would result in something quite unique. The Agnes Barton Senior Sleuths mystery series has forever changed Madison's life, with each of the books making it onto the Amazon bestseller's list for cozy mystery and humor.

Madison is now able to do what she loves best and work from home as a full-time writer. She has two children, Australian Shepard and hilarious husky to keep her company while she churns out more Agnes Barton stories with a few others brewing in the pot.
