Pete Madzelan resides in New Mexico with his wife and cat, Manny. He’s a mainlining green chile junkie, consuming large quantities with almost anything. 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 currently has fiction in The Dying Goose; forthcoming in Poydras Review. Photography in BRICKrhetoric, San Pedro River Review, Cactus Heart, convergence: journal of poetry and art, Vine Leaves Literary Journal; and forthcoming in Bellingham Review, Pachinko, Epiphany-epiphmag.com, and Aperion Review.
