David Madsen honed his novel and script editing skills as a story analyst for film producers and literary agents. He evaluated more than two hundred novels and screenplays for artistic merit and commercial appeal, while writing scene by scene critiques on each project. He developed an editor's eye for commercial success which he combines with a writer's understanding of the discipline and artistry it takes to get there.

He is the author of three novels; "Black Plume, the Suppressed Memoirs of Edgar Allan Poe" published by Simon and Schuster; "Vodoun", a thriller that mixes Haitian politics and voodoo, published by William Morrow; and "U.S.S.A.", a speculative mystery set in American-occupied Russia, also published by William Morrow. "U.S.S.A." was a Book Of The Month club selection and was translated into several languages. He is also the author, with Elisa Makunga, of "L.A. Adventures", a travel guide to exploring the Los Angeles area by rail. He is currently working on a new mystery novel set against the growth of the national secrecy state in post World War Two America.

He is the screenwriter of "Copycat", the Warner Brothers thriller starring Sigourney Weaver and Holly Hunter. He has sold film scripts to Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Miramax, Imagine Entertainment, Disney and Lions Gate. He also adapted his novel "Black Plume" for ABC Television.
