I have been working for the United States Postal Service since 1999. It’s a job and it gets crazy at times. I’m proud to work for them (most nights), but I have to admit. They aren’t the brightest of the bunch when it comes to certain things.
I have always loved to write since I’ve been seven years old. I still have my first story I ever wrote in school. One day I’ll scan it and put it up here for the world to see.
I have a busy life at home. I work overnights and my wife works afternoons, so I sleep 3-5 hours if I’m lucky and than I have my kids the rest of the day. I find time to write while I’m at work. I write during my break and lunch hour. It works for me.
When did you first start writing?
My earliest memory of writing was when I was seven years old. I had to write a story for school. I loved it. I wrote a story about an octopus. I still have it to this day. That was when I knew I wanted to be a writer. It took me a long time to get myself motivated to write. Life always gets in the way and if you don't find the time, you will never achieve your goals.

Author Joseph Madden does a fine job in his first novel, The Starhawk Chronicles.
Right from the beginning of the book you are brought into a well thought out world filled with villains and thriving planets and the unappreciated Bounty Hunters profession.
Captain Kid aka Jesse Forster is a likable captain of the Hunter ship Starhawk. His team of hunters are charged with bringing down the despicable Nexus Gang which have escaped prison only 6 months after Jesse's team captured them the first time, but with heavy losses.
The hunt brings you across the galaxy too many well thought out planets with a life of their own.
You learn throughout the course of the book a little of the backstory of the team and it didn't take away from the main story line.
The ending was enjoyable and I would suggest this book to any sci-fi fan. I am definitely looking forward to the next chapter of Captain Kids crew.
