About Us

JACK MALONEY grew up in the tenements of Chicago’s South Side, and earned a journalism degree from the University of Missouri. His career as a freelance writer has taken him to orphanages in Haiti, West African refugee camps, Middle East mosques, Oriental marketplaces and islands in the South Pacific, and his work has won national and international awards. A mountaineer, scuba diver, parachutist and XC ski instructor, Jack has canoed, skied, backpacked and climbed in wilderness areas across North America. He is a dual citizen of the US and Ireland.

BARBARA MALONEY is a native of Minneapolis. She was already a mother of two when she earned a degree in microbiology from the University of Minnesota, and later worked in a gallery specializing in Inuit and Northwest Coast tribal art. After living in Scotland three years, she came back to America, returned to school at the age of 46 and began a second career as an accountant and tax auditor for the State of Minnesota. Barbara’s illustrations for The Wee Mad Road capture scenes of traditional Highland working life that are seldom seen today.

JACK AND BARBARA MALONEY raised two daughters together, make music on piano and concertina together, and travel the world together. Today, they live near the banks of the Upper Mississippi River in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
