“I like to tell my readers what is fact and what is fiction in my novels…that way they are both entertained and enlightened which leads many readers to visit my western settings. Doing the research on my novels – both westerns and historicals – is a lot of fun and hugely interesting. I especially enjoy visiting small historical museums where many old records, letters and accounts of our western heritage are found.”
Gary McCarthy and his wife Jane live in the Phoenix, Arizona area and love to explore the Southwest in search of new stories to tell. For more information on this author, visit his website at www.CanyonCountryBooks.com
