Madeleine Mysko is a writer who served as an Army nurse on the burn ward in Fort Sam Houston, TX, during the Vietnam War. Bringing Vincent Home, her debut novel, re-enters that time by way of a Baltimore family who must come to terms with the wounding of one of their own. A graduate of The Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars, Mysko has published in venues that include The Baltimore Sun, Bellevue Literary, The Hudson Review, River Styx, and Shenandoah. Among her awards in fiction are an individual artist grant from the Maryland State Arts Council and a Baltimore City Artscape Prize.

Once upon a time, she worked as a correspondence translator for Bavaria's Prince von Hohenzollern and consequently wore out two very sturdy dictionaries.
