Ms. L'Engle was born in 1918 in New York City. She wrote her first book, The Small Rain, while touring with Eva Le Gallienne in Uncle Harry. She met Hugh Franklin, to whom she was married until his death in 1986, while they were rehearsing The Cherry Orchard, and they were married on tour during a run of The Joyous Season, starring Ethel Barrymore.
Ms. L'Engle retired from the stage after her marriage, and the Franklins moved to northwest Connecticut and opened a general store. After a decade in Connecticut, the family returned to New York.
After splitting her time between New York City and Connecticut and acting as the librarian and writer-in-residence at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Madeleine LEngle died on September 7, 2007 at the age of 88.

"Once again, LEngle touches the deepest parts of our psyche and heart with her artists wand. She writes with an earthy rhythm that not only reveals the mysteries of our artistic natures, but also qualifies all along the way her inimitable wise-woman philosophies. LEngle s writing is Gods gift to a generation who needs to sit on a stump and lend an ear to what the right brain is saying to the left and to what the soul is saying to the heart. Walking on Water guides the wandering artist back to the Savior and says There, youve come home again where you belong!"
Patricia Hickman, award-winning author of Katrinas Wings
"There are those who write about art-making as if they re detailing the techniques of a heart surgeon. Then there are those, like Madeleine LEngle, who simply show you their heart. Like the words of Jesus to the fisherman brothers, the words of Madeleine are follow me words. Through the pages of Walking on Water hungry, thirsty folks have been following for two decadesquickly recognizing that the reason Madeleine is worth following is that she follows Jesus."
