About the Author:


Irish Beth Maddock (nee Fell) was a former columnist for two local newspapers, had stories published in Reader’s Digest Canada, and shared on CHBC Television. Her award winning children’s book, “The Great Carp Escape” has been and broadcasted on programs like 100 Huntley Street, The Harvest Show, Bridges (Nashville) on CTN and CBC Radio to name a few outlets.

She is a published poet, and has both performed in and directed plays and musical theater productions. A playwright for a church drama production, her three part monologue “Tapestry” helped fund-raise over $1,000. So began the realization that she can help raise much needed funds for great causes with her creativity.

Her award winning children’s book, “The Great Carp Escape” is available as a fundraiser for schools, churches, charities and ministries in need.  

Her most recent story publication is found in Chicken Soup for the Soul’s “Life Lesson’s From the Cat”. (May 2019)
