Madonna McManus

Madonna began working in continuity and casting in the Canadian film industry’s tax-shelter heyday of the late 1970’s, then spent many years pursuing a career as copywriter, editor and creative director in advertising and corporate communications. But she could not stay away, and in the mid 90’s transitioned back into the industry as a television line producer, writer, executive story editor and supervising producer. She began to focus exclusively on screenwriting with a move to Europe in 1999, where she joined the illustrious Brussels Writers Group. She returned to Canada in 2004 after the completion of a feature-length screenplay, Sabina, with co-writer John L. Lash. She has since joined Thunderlight Productions and written several dramatic and satirical pilot projects for television.

She is currently collaborating on a feature-length screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s biographical novel Doctor Sax, the legendary beat generation author’s personal favorite of his groundbreaking literary legacy.
