Meet Madi from One Tear and Enter Our GIVEAWAY

Today I’d like to introduce you to Madison Melbourne from One Tear. Thanks for agreeing to join in the festivities today, Madi!

So let’s get started, because I know the readers here really want to know…

Everything about you! Tell us, where did you grow up? Is that the only place you’ve ever lived or have you moved around?

Hi, Denisea! Gee, I’ve not seen you since you typed The End. Hope you’ve been doing well. J Hey, readers! So happy to be here. Let’s see…I grew up just outside of Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, home to a fairly large military training facility. That’s where I met and married my first husband. I didn’t move around as much as some of my friends did, but his job did take us to Kentucky. But, circumstances dictated I would end up back in Missouri trying to rebuild my life.

What’s your current occupation?

I’m a private music instructor. I teach piano and strings. At some point though, I’d like to add horse breeder to my resume.

What’s in your refrigerator right now?

A pitcher of sweet tea, breakfast sausage from a local butcher, deli ham, cheddar cheese, leftover spaghetti, pickles, Ott’s salad dressing, a partial tube of tomato paste, milk, a half a bottle of St. James wine (Country Red), mustard, eggs, salad fixings, two containers of yogurt (one blueberry and one vanilla), cranberry juice, and a carton of Chinese take-out.

What smell do you associate with your childhood? Is it a happy smell?

The smell of homemade biscuits baking and homemade sausage frying. It is totally happy. It’s what my grandma CeCe used to make me for breakfast whenever I stayed with her.

Do you have any tattoos? What are they? If you don’t, would you consider getting one and what would it be?

I do! I have black musical notes on my shoulder.

What is your most treasured possession?

It would have been my grandmother’s piano had it not been hauled away before I could lay claim on it. But that’s material, and I’ve learned material things aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. So, I’d have to say my most treasured possessions are my relationships with my family, Rafe, and my friends.

Do you have any regrets? What are they?

Plenty, but dwelling on them doesn’t fix a thing. Besides, for every regret I have, a lesson was learned.

Do you prefer jeans or sweats? Flip-flops or sneakers?

Jeans and my ropers. And when I’m not wearing my ropers I prefer to go barefoot.

What is your greatest achievement?

Learning that I’m worthy of love.

Is there anything you’d like to tell your writer?

Thank you for telling my story and finding my soul mate. J
