L.L. Madrid lives in Tucson where she can smell the rain before it falls. She resides with her five-year-old daughter, a mysterious cat, and on occasion, a scorpion or two. She likes food spicy, beer sour, and words whispered.
Her short story, "The Rat Girl of Saint Bruno's", received honorable mention in The Speculative Literature Foundation's 2015 Working Class Writers Grant.
Summertime Dusk won 101 Word's 17th writing contest.
What Groupon Says was nominated for Best Small Fictions 2016.
When she's not writing her own stories she's reading for Speculative 66, where she is Editor-In-Chief. (http://speculative66.weebly.com/)
Look for L.L. Madrid's forthcoming short stories in Third Wednesday Magazine, Devilfish Review, The Coil, and Gamut.
