Terry Madden Writes


About me 

My writing career has taken me on many wild rides. I am the author of the epic fantasy adventure series Three Wells of the Sea, and my award-winning short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. With a background in biological research and teaching, I find I always have more questions than answers about the natural world. 

​My short story "Animal" about a veterinarian in the future and her fight to save the last animals on Earth won the Writers of the Future Contest and appears in volume 30 of their anthology.  My screenplay "Passiontide" about the legendary Pope Joan won the Hollywood Network Screenplay Discovery Award.

My interest in ancient culture and mythology coexists just fine with my passion for space and worlds spinning around other stars.
