co-authored by Crystal Crawford and M.J. Padgett.

Welcome to

Hi, everyone!

We're MJ and Crystal, and we're the authors behind Considerate Malice stories.

The concept of Considerate Malice is to produce stories that suck you in and get your pulse pounding... but with a promise to readers that it will all work out okay in the end. Usually. Or at least somewhat okay. Most of the time. Nothing's perfect, right? ;)

All the stories here on Considerate Malice are co-written by MJ Padgett and Crystal Crawford, and we both LOVE taking readers on crazy roller-coaster rides, so buckle up and hang on tight!

Elbow Greetings



Crystal and MJ actually met through Wattpad, and co-wrote their first book entirely online without ever actually speaking to each other or meeting. Their first time to speak on the phone was the day that book won a Watty.

You can find out more about each of our individual work at our separate websites or social media, and can even subscribe for our separate newsletters, where we'll be sending out monthly updates on our individual work as well as our collaborations!  

We have lots of fun books in store for you, and even some special promotions and freebies, so be sure to follow us for updates!

We hope you enjoy our stories!


Crystal and MJ
