Mystery Author of the Month: Madison Johns


Madison Johns

Today we have with us, humorous mystery author, Madison Johns. As I always do on my Mystery Author of the Month posts, I've asked her to reply to three questions. 


Patricia: Madison, when did you know that you wanted to be a writer? 
Madison: It was never anything I ever thought about until I was forty-four. The writing bug hit me like a sledgehammer.
Patricia: If, for some reason, you couldn’t be a writer, what profession would you choose? 
Madison: A dog breeder, seriously I have a miniature Australian shepherd, husky, and labradoodle that I bought within the last year and a half. I love dogs.
Patricia: Do you have a bucket list, things you still want to do and/or places you want to visit? 
Madison: It’s too big to list I think, but I’d like to travel to England one day. I love history and would love to tour castles. I’d also love to go on a whale watching tour, see the ocean, the mountains, sky is the limit.
Bio:

Madison Johns was born and raised in a small town in Mid-Michigan, where she spent most of her time creating stories in her head. Fast forward to 2012 when she burst onto the writing scene at the age of 48, with her first mystery, Armed and Outrageous, depicting a zany cast of persons of a certain age characters.  A series that takes place in the real town of Tawas, Michigan, one of Madison's favorite vacation spot as a child.




Birds of a Feather flock together in Tawas, Michigan, as the Tawas Point Birding Festival comes to town. Agnes and Eleanor are happy to be home again, but are back to their investigative ways after a deadly accident occurs on Plank Road. They’re ready to grab their binoculars and search high and low for the truth about what really happened, even if they’re the only ones who think that a crime has been committed.

    1. Thanks. It's not effortless. There are days I so laze off, but ultimately I can pull it together somehow. I have so many readers who love my Agnes series that I hate to make them wait too long. When I write about them it's like coming home.

  6. I'm really enjoying this series. It got my attention because my mother grew up in Tawas and I still have a lot of family members that live there.
