Writer, Content Strategist, Editor

A Christian writer who loves words and the Word

My name is Madeline Twooney and l am a Christian writer and blogger. I have my own blog, Jacob's Ladder Blog, and l am a regular contributor to two magazines from the Salem Network - and - as well as YMI Magazine, which is a part of Our Daily Bread Ministries. I have also written articles for SheLoves, Converge and Ruminate Magazine.

I am British, but l live in Germany. I am, however, more than happy to work remotely.

What you will immediately notice about me, is that l am a hard worker. When l am given a task, l will work on it until it is completed to my satisfaction, which is always of a professional quality, as l set very high standards for myself. I am articulate, thorough and very at ease with grammar and spelling conventions. I believe in being organized and aim to submit a task before the expected due date. Besides speaking English, l am also proficient in the German language.

Communication is of the essence to me; listening to the client, knowing his/her needs and familiarizing myself with the product or service they are promoting, is what makes it possible for me to turn their vision into a message, that will encapture their customer's attention and hearts.

If my words have encaptured your attention, then feel free to get in touch with me per email at

I look forward to hearing from you!
