About Madge

About the author pic

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 originally went to the University of Maine to study Broadcast Production.  Following college I worked in radio and TV for ten years, where I first discovered my passion for marketing and writing.   One of the things that inspired me to go out on my own in more creative pursuits was when I was  Marketing Director for a real estate company many years ago.   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.  But that’s where my creative expertise came in and saved the day and launched my writing career! 

In my over 20 years of marketing writing and public relations, I have worked in various industries including  real estate, printing, financial planning, dental and non-profit.  My skills have also changed over the years as new media has developed.  I’m well versed in writing books, web content, feature articles, blogs, and social media.  And I am becoming more focused on writing books, articles, and helping others publish.

Personally, I am a divorced Mother of 3 young adult children (teens & 20’s), living in Rochester, NY.  I enjoy dive bars, fine dining, alternative music, writing (duh), and being a Mom.

    Congratulations . . . you are the first person I’ve “stumbled upon”! Boy, a person could be really nasty – or mischievous – with their choices of categories. Not to worry . . . I tagged you under books.

    I was tempted to use that tag, “cross dressing”, but that’s only because of something about a cross between Erma and Kathy . . . by the way, who is Kathy Griffin? Yeah, I’ve heard the name, but who the hell is she? 🙂

      Well thank you! Kathy Griffin is a redheaded comedian who is very snarky, tells a lot of celebrity gossip and has a filthy mouth. Oh and she’s very popular with gay men Only difference,I don’t tell celebrity gossip. lol She had a show on Bravo “My Life on the D List” Thanks for reading!

    I was trying to find where to e-mail you but couldn’t find it in five seconds so I’ll just leave my message here. You left a review of my book “Wasted” on Amazon and said a nasty thing or two. It was actually things I was already thinking but was too lazy to go back and fix but you inspired me to bother. I did a pretty good rework of the whole thing and also got rid of every instance of the corny catch phrase. I just wanted to say thank you.

      Thanks Neil. And I’m sorry you felt I was being nasty, I was not, just being honest and a little sarcastic. Sorry I guess maybe I shouldn’t have put in the part about stabbing my eye. I said you were a good writer but it just needed some tweaking. I shall go back and re-read. See sometimes being a little snarky gets people motivated, I know it has done wonders in my writing. After a guy told me he wanted to wipe his ass with my book, I went back in and cleaned up some rambling writing. lol P.S. I put my email on the front page, so feel free to contact me any time.

    Now it’s “authentic, vintage shag and the macrame plant holder is “a lovely, housewarming gift.” Thanks for including me on your blog roll, you generous girl! xo MSP

    You sound great! Maybe you’ll be of help to me. I’m an artist/writer still learning about business and marketing.
