Tim Madigan wrote his first book in 1968 when he was 11 years old. Every week in the autumn of that year, he scribbled down his account of the latest University of Minnesota football game in a notebook. Sales were modest. But a love of books, words and writing never left released him, leading from his small-town Minnesota upbringing to a Texas career writing newspaper stories and eventually books that were more formally published and found slightly larger audiences. By the mid-1990s, Tim had become one of the most decorated newspaper reporters in Texas history (three times named the state's top reporter), while writing about everything from sick children, to serial killers, cowboy poets, to his own experiences as a husband and father. His first book, "See No Evil: Blind Devotion and Bloodshed in David Koresh's Holy War," was published in 1993, followed eight years later by "The Burning: Massacre, Destruction and the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921." In its review, the New York Times called The Burning "A powerful book, a harrowing case study made all the more so by Madigan's skillful, clear-eyed telling of it." Madigan's most recent book, "I'm Proud of You: My Friendship With Fred Rogers," reveals his life-altering friendship with Fred Rogers, which began in 1995 when he profiled the children's icon for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Tim's first novel, "Every Common Sight," will be published soon. When not writing books or newspaper stories, Tim enjoys spending time with his wife, Catherine, being a dad, playing the guitar, coaching and playing ice hockey, and backpacking in the Canadian Rockies.
