About the Author
Norris W. Burroughs is a writer and illustrator who was born in Harlem, New York. Burroughs dated Madonna in the fall of 1978, when she had recently arrived in New York from Michigan, several years prior to her amazing success. Madonna's biographers have interviewed Burroughs, and his quotes appear in most accounts of her life, but he has never told his story in his own words. Burroughs feels that it is vital to place Madonna's ascent in the context of the contemporary New York scene.Burroughs is the Author and Artist of Voodoo Macbeth, a graphic novel depicting the events surrounding a 1936 performance of the Shakespeare play that impresario Orson Welles staged and directed. Burroughs father was an actor in said production, playing the part of Hecate, a role that Welles changed to that of a male demonic force.Burroughs lives with his wife and son in Mill Valley, California.
