Been to hell and back, I’ll tell you how I survived with humor. I’m loud, short, curvy, and have red hair. I’m where inspirational insight meets humor and sometimes naughty words.
I’m Margaret, also known as “Madge” Madigan.
I have been a freelance writer for several years. I studied Broadcast Production at the University. Following college I worked in radio and TV for ten years, as a byproduct I discovered my passion for marketing and writing. One of my favorite jobs when I started my marketing/writing career after radio was being a Marketing Director for a real estate company where I wrote all the content for print ads and property brochures. It’s amazing how many ways you can come up with a nice way of saying a home has crappy shag carpet and smells of a past grease fire. But that’s where my creative expertise came in and saved the day and launched my writing career!
After 20 years of marketing, mothering and writing, I decided to blogging and subsequently writing books. I have authored two books – “When Life Gives You Lemons… at Least You Won’t Get Scurvy” various stories of me making the best of the crap life has given me after divorce. And the second book is “Snap Out of It!” a collection of columns from Rochester Woman Magazine.
Personally, I am a divorced mother of 3 mostly adult children (teens & 20’s), living in Rochester, NY. I raised my kids mostly all by myself and through poverty and crap, got them all into college and they became kind, funny, productive humans. I enjoy dive bars, fine dining, alternative music (Joy Division rules!), writing (duh), and being a Mom.
