Oliver Madison

J. Oliver Madison has always loved writing and devouring books by James Patterson and J.K. Rowling. If a story has drama, adventure and a twist, you can count him in. He’s got a little bit of a dark side too, so you can expect to see that from time to time in his writing and sense of humor. He loves experimenting with characters from all backgrounds with all kinds of quirks. There are so many types of people in this world and only a handful get touched on in mainstream media. That’s what Madison would like to change. His latest book is "Dying to Know."

When he’s not writing, he’s playing ultimate frisbee or grabbing coffee with friends. To this day, he still loves having marathons of "Avatar the Last Airbender," Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy and Tarantino films. He’s also a chess and Super Smash Brothers fanatic. You should play him sometime! When he’s not doing that, he’s trying (and failing) to teach his yorkie-poo, Riley, to fetch.
