Pete Madzelan resides in New Mexico with his wife and cat, Manny. Relaxing moments find him traveling and studying the southwest; visiting breweries and enjoying photography, baseball, and music from a select group of songwriters, which are needed outlets away from his yearly failed experience at gardening. He has had fiction and poetry in The Dying Goose, Poydras Review, Cigale Literary, Bellowing Ark, and Wind. His work is forthcoming in Scapegoat Review and Vine Leaves Literary Journal. His photography appears in The Meadowland Review, Epiphany, Bellingham Review, Petrichor Review, Photography Center of Cape Cod, San Pedro River Review, and others.
