About the Author

Madelaine Wong is the co-author of Cradling the Past, a Biography of Margaret Shaw.

Not to be confined to one genre, Madelaine writes historical fiction in her book-under-construction: Yin Yang Eyes, the story of a teenage girl growing up in Borneo during WWII. 

Madelaine has also completed and will soon release a speculative fiction/political satire entitled Quietus, a near-futuristic tale of a dictatorship whose method of population control includes euthanasia.

What happens when too much power is placed in the hands of a few corrupt individuals? The country of Covona has come under the control of a dictator. After their bitter defeat in the war against Solime, Aura Zarling builds a wall between the two countries. She promises to make Covona strong and pure, and free of dysfunctionals. Restrictions on euthanasia are abolished. Quietus becomes law.


Dr. Piter Dram is blind to the destructiveness of Aura’s regime. He becomes a victim of his own greed and                                                                                                  egoism. 


News reporter Tresha Farwell fights for human rights with an underground network. She must call upon all her strength and resilience to resist the tyrant that has taken over the country, especially now that her son, a boy with Down’s syndrome, is labeled a dysfunctional.


What separates democracy from dictatorship? The insidiousness of evil encroaches all too easily when guards are dropped.



This book captures the history of human atrocities and boils it down to bite-sized and relatable bits.

- J.J. Reichenbach, author of book series Nix and Notorious Nix
