Brian Madigan


I came about in the era of plaid suits, bell-bottoms, long shirt collars and dandy moustaches, also, love was free.

Times have changed.

People and their personalities and behaviors may not, but instead revolve, perhaps tumble, on through space and time from their point of manifestation to their end and back again, cosmically recycled, sometimes improved, "value-added" having evolved from the traits grab-bag into something stronger, more elaborate, smarter; other times a flawed amalgam, rusty, weak, angry, greedy.

I’m fascinated by all who dip their bits in the human gene pool for their lap or splash-about, whether by choice or by chance.

I write about them, my interpretation, striving to hit the sweet-spot of perspicacity. Many have found my stories to be entertaining and insightful.

Dad came from a newspaper man, and himself was a writer; I stand on their shoulders. Also, the ones still alive who afford me their encouragement, loyalty and love; I stand on their shoulders and I'm grateful for their support.

I reside in Midwest America, where I grow grapes and make wine on a small scale when I am not writing or working.

Thanks for reading!
