Personal History

Ivory Sophia Madison J.D., is a multi-faceted woman.

Law, politics, and consulting

Though she graduated law school, she decided not to practice law, choosing instead to stay involved in politics after having started a local New Orleans chapter of NOW. In 2002 she helped found the consulting firm Madison/St. John before moving on to Red Room.


Madison is currently working with her friend, pianist Richard Hall, on a CD of "jazz standards with a lounge edge" with a tentative release set for 2009.


Madison has been writing professionally since law school at least. As a student she was Editor in Chief of the Law Review. She counts among her works The Mice of French Laundry, a children's book, and The Imperial Tea Garden of Sorrowful Cranes, her first completed novel.

Red Room

In 2002, Madison started Red Room, a social network for writers, as well as Red Room Writer's Society, which seeks to help writers get their stories onto the page.

Professional History

Her first graphic novel, written for DC comics, was Huntress: Year One, a Year One that fleshed out the backstory of Helena Bertinelli. She's described the character as "a strong female superhero" and "stronger, smarter, and more beautiful than I am saving the world with far less effort."
