Bill’s writing career has spanned six decades. He writes about the history of which he was a part, with Sandra as his co-author and publicist. Bill’s signature writing style has been described as journalistic, straightforward, and “as precise and economical as a Mickey Spillane novel.” (Marine Corps League Magazine)
In the words of Barnaby Conrad, founder of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and author of Matador: “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.” More About Bill
Sandra’s writing career began in the 1990s as a publicist for the performing arts. In 2000, she began collaborating with Bill and together they co-authored nine books, each drawn from events in Bill’s life. In 2019, Bill left this world. However, Sandra will continue to spread the word about his legacy of literary works.
Charles Champlin, the late film critic and arts editor of The Los Angeles Times, wrote: “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.” More About Sandra
Bill and Sandra each have a favorite 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.”
