Wolfson's first book, Flash Burnout won the William C. Morris Award, a national honor given by the American Library Association to the best book for young adults by a first-time author. It is a finalist for the Leslie Bradshaw Award for Young Adult Literature, which will be given at the Oregon Book Awards ceremony April 25. Her second novel, The Mermaid's Mirror was published last year.
Wolfson was born in Portland and dreamed of being a writer. She wrote and illustrated a book called "The Mermaid's Fun" when she was 8 and showed pages of it at her readings for "The Mermaid's Mirror." She told The Oregonian in an interview in 2010 that she used the name L.K.Madigan because she didn't want to scare off "that rare, elusive creature, the male reader."
Wolfson was a 20-year survivor of breast cancer. She announced on her blog in January that she had pancreatic cancer. "I'm not angry about the diagnosis," Wolfson wrote. "How can I feel angry when I had this gift of time? I'm not even afraid of dying. We all die, and I made my peace with that a long time ago."
This information was not written by me, I found it at a site called Oregonlive.
