A few words about Bill and Sandra…

2. Bill McGee custom-made, roping saddleBill and Sandra McGee are a husband/wife writing duo and claim they seldom disagree. (More about this later.)

Bill is an award-winning World War II military historian with 22 nonfiction books to his credit. His writing career has spanned over six decades and his signature writing style has been described as sparse, straightforward and  journalistic.

In the words of Barnaby Conrad, founder of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference: “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.”

Sandra V. McGee (WWA)Sandra’s writing career began in the 1990s as a publicist for the performing arts. In 2000, she joined forces with Bill and to date they have co-authored nine books.

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.”

As to whether Bill and Sandra ever disagree… Sandra has a favorite saying about writing: “The strongest drive is neither love nor hate; it is the urge to edit another’s copy.”
