Magdalena Scott

USA Today Bestselling Author LoriFostersigning_CincinnatiMagdalena Scott is a lifelong “small town girl,” having grown up in a corner of the Midwest that most people have never heard of, let alone visited.

Magdalena is in the second chapter of her own life now. In the first chapter she grew up in a loving family, made lifelong friendships starting when she was one year, two months, and three days old; and fell in love with writing stories (humorous tales of small town life) as soon as she learned cursive. Her first publishing credit was in second grade: a haiku in a national Sunday School magazine. Magdalena was blessed to live her own small town love story, and during 30 years of marriage to the smartest man she’s ever met, also became Mom to a wonderful son. The end of chapter one was becoming a widow when her husband died from a brain tumor.

Magdalena’s chapter two has included downsizing from the big family home to a studio apartment, becoming a full-time romance writer, hitting the USA Today list several times, becoming Mother-in-law to an amazing young woman, and finding her own second chance romance. Magdalena doesn’t just write about widow romance, second chances, or the benefits of a minimalist lifestyle–she’s living them.

Though she loves to travel, Magdalena’s fulltime residence is in small town America, where life in the slow lane includes plenty of heartwarming, simple pleasures: Christmas celebrations, festivals, street fairs, and old-fashioned family recipes shared at reunions or backyard barbecues. She’s seen her own town be at its best when family, friends, and even the entire community pull together as life’s challenges threaten.

Magdalena currently has two small town series available for readers. The McClains of Legend, Tennessee (contemporary sweet romance),

The McClains of Legend, Tennesee

and Serendipity, Indiana (contemporary sweet romance and women’s fiction):


When she’s not at Authors of Main Street, look for her at one of these places…
