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.
