Books by Bill and Sandra McGee


We’re Bill and Sandra McGee… a husband/wife writing duo.

We each have a pet saying about writing:

Bill:  “To anyone who has ever considered writing, there is only one way—ass in seat.”

Sandra: The strongest drive is neither love nor hate; it is the urge to edit another’s copy.”

Bill McGee’s writing career spans six decades. He writes in different genres with all of his books sharing a common thread: Bill writes about the history of which he was a part. He tells his stories in his signature writing style described as journalistic, straightforward, and “as precise and economical as a Mickey Spillane novel.” (Marine Corps League Magazine) More About Bill

Sandra McGee’s writing career began in the 1990s as a publicist for the performing arts. In 2001, she began collaborating with Bill and they co-authored nine books. More About Sandra

“Bill McGee is no armchair historian…He’s lived what he writes about whether it’s joining the Navy in ’42 at age seventeen simply to get into the fight, or cowboying in the West in the postwar ’40s, or working in broadcasting in the early days of 1950s and ’60s television.”
– Barnaby Conrad, founder of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and author of Matador

“Though too young to have experienced an era firsthand, Sandra McGee immerses herself in the subject and captures in her writing the essence of the time.”
– Charles Champlin, late film critic and arts editor, The Los Angeles Times
