about me

I have been writing since the age of twelve. Born and raised in Queens, NY, I now live in Wisconsin with my wife, 3 daughters, two dogs and a guinea pig.

I basically write what I would want to read. I grow tired of scanning the science fiction/ fantasy bookshelves of the local booksellers and finding only vampire tales, or books based on the latest video game.

I am a child of the 80's, therefore my influences may be viewed as "cheesy" by today's younger audience. Star Wars, Star Trek, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and the original Battlestar Galactica have all, in one way or another, influenced my own vision of the future. I'm guessing that those out there with a nostalgic attitude probably share my POV.

My first novel, The Starhawk Chronicles, is available as an e-book from Amazon Kindle Direct.

The Starhawk Chronicles

Joseph J. Madden

Bounty hunter Jesse Forster and his crew on the toughest hunt of their careers.


The year is 2283.

Though more than a quarter-century has passed since the end of the last war, the Galactic Confederation is still busy picking up the pieces. Whole sectors of the galaxy remain lawless, rife with corruption and greed. The criminal element has a well-established foothold on these sectors.

It is a good time to be a bounty hunter.

Jesse Forster and the crew of the STARHAWK are some of the best bounty hunters in the business. Kayla Karson is a young independent hunter out to make a name for herself. Their paths collide as both take up pursuit of the leaders of the Nexus Gang, the galaxy's most brutal crime syndicate. An uneasy alliance is formed as the two undertake the most difficult hunt of their careers. Great rewards are to be claimed, if they don't kill each other in the process.

The Starhawk Chronicles is now available as an e-book in multiple formats from Amazon, Smashwords, and other online e-book retailers.

The Starhawk Chronicles Book I....

Joseph J. Madden

Jesse Forster and the Crew of the Starhawk get more than bargained for on a trip to the pleasure world of Utopia


The planet Utopia is everything its name suggests - a world of incomparable beauty and leisure. An adult playground on a planetary scale.


What the travel brochures do not tell of is that there is a very dark side to paradise. Utopia is a world of shattered dreams with a tragic past, and its owner will do anything necessary to keep that past hidden. Arigh Boke is not a man to be crossed, and will not tolerate upstarts.


But Arigh Boke has never met the crew of the Starhawk.


Jesse Forster and his team have arrived on Utopia for some much needed rest, but a ghost from Jesse's past is about to help sow the seeds of revolution among Utopia's downtrodden, pitching the crew of the Starhawk into full-scale rebellion. They are about to teach Arigh Boke the meaning of the word "wreckreation."

Hey Liz, Wanted to thank you for backing Starhawk. I have backed and will be reading A Fine Pickle very soon. As a native born NY'er, anything tied to 9/11, even a fictional title, intrigues me. Will let you know my thoughts and feelings as I read. Thanks again for backing me Joe view book
