The author’s parents encouraged Roux and her brothers to pursue their artistic endeavors. Her time at Beloit College was equally fruitful. Surprisingly, she joined the institution because of its incredible anthropology program.

But she quickly realized that science was not her cup of tea and promptly veered into creative writing. She has fond memories of Steve Wright’s English classes. The professor of English Emeritus fed her love for the written word and influences her work to this day.

She also credits Francesca Abbate with pushing her to seriously consider publishing. Roux remembers undertaking an Honors Term project without fully appreciating the impact it would have on her future.

The project expected Roux to pitch, write, and present a novel at the end of the semester. The final product was 100,000 words long, and it showed the author that she had what it took to write a novel to completion.

Eventually, she graduated, and a future agent compelled her to turn her online fiction blog into ‘Allison Hewitt is Trapped,’ her first published novel.

She got the idea for the blog while working at a bookstore. Roux would often daydream. One day, she began thinking of all the ways she would survive if a zombie outbreak occurred at the store.

She decided to tell the story in blog format. The author settled for WordPress because her understanding of HTML was limited, and WordPress was intuitive enough for simpletons like her to understand.

Some of the comments from the WordPress blog appear in the novel. She selected the ones that expanded the world and added value to the story. It allowed her to honor the people who contributed so much of their time to her blog.

Roux’s co-workers did not object to her decision to include them in the story, even though she exaggerated their personalities. They were happy to see themselves represented in her work.

The author has written several novels in the years since ‘Allison Hewitt is Trapped’ first came out. She released her debut novel at a time when HarperCollins was searching for YA horror novels, which drove her to write the first book in the Asylum series.

Many of her fans know her primarily for the stories she has written for established franchises such as Star Wars, Dungeons and Dragons, and Critical Role.

Best Madeleine Roux Books

The author works with a rough outline. She’s convinced that every storyteller requires a vague plan before penning a book, even if they typically write by the seat of their pants. Otherwise, their story will fall apart. Roux’s best novels include:

Asylum: Sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford couldn’t wait to start his stint at New Hampshire College Prep. After living a largely isolated existence in high school, Dan wanted to pursue new friendships at the summer program.

But then he arrived and discovered a terrifying truth. His dorm was previously an asylum designed to house the criminally insane.

Now, the young man and his friends must accept that they came to the creepy summer home for a reason. Their enrollment in the summer program was not a coincidence. Can they unravel the asylum’s secrets before it’s too late?

Sanctum: Dan, Abby, and Jordan had no intention of returning to New Hampshire College. Their time at the former asylum had traumatized them, and they couldn’t wait to move on. But then someone began sending them photos of an old carnival.

Against their better judgment, the teens went back to the asylum and realized that the carnival in the photos was real. More importantly, it had returned to the campus after many years.

Dan and his friends are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. That means sneaking out of classes and ignoring invites to college parties to investigate the surrounding town and its abandoned houses. If Camford has a secret, the trio will find it.
