Madeleine L'Engle (1918 2007) was an American writer of YoungAdultLiterature best-known for ''AWrinkleInTime'' and its sequels.

Most of her novels belong to one of two sequences, referred to as "Kairos" and "Chronos", from the two ancient Greek words for time. "Chronos" refers to chronological or sequential time, while "Kairos" signifies a time in between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens. (Although both sequences contain speculative elements, the Chronos sequence is primarily realistic, while the Kairos sequence, which includes ''A Wrinkle in Time'', is clearly sf/fantasy.)
