The Authors of the Book
William L. McGee and Sandra V. McGee are authors/publishers with numerous books in both print and eBook formats. Bill has received critical acclaim for his four World War II military histories and, together, the couple have received praise for their memoir of Bill’s cowboyin’ days in the late 1940s on an exclusive dude ranch outside of Reno that catered to wealthy divorce seekers.
William L. McGee (1925- ) was born and raised on a ranch in Montana. At 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served in the Pacific in the Naval Armed Guard 1942-1946. After the war, from 1947 to 1950, he returned to cowboyin’ and worked as a horse wrangler in Yellowstone National Park, as a trail and deer hunting guide at Lake Tahoe, and ultimately landed the coveted job of the head dude wrangler on the Flying M.E., an exclusive Nevada dude-divorce ranch 21 miles south of Reno that catered to wealthy Eastern socialites and Hollywood celebrities, most seeking privacy and a six-week divorce. In 1958, Mr. McGee transitioned into the broadcasting field where he enjoyed a successful 32-year career in syndicated television program sales and station management. In 1971, he launched BMC Communications to provide radio and television stations nationwide with a retail sales training and development program. In 1990, Mr. McGee launched a third career as a World War II military historian.
Sandra V. McGee is a publicist and the co-author of numerous books with her husband. When not writing, her passions are movies of the 1930s and ’40s, and the ballet.
