About Melinda McGuire

Hello Reader and thank you for your interest!

A little about me – I’m a native Texan. I’ve lived on both coasts of the U.S. and returned to Texas.

I grew up traveling red dirt roads surrounded by Pine trees.

My Hefner Falls series, including my debut novel, Josephine: Red Dirt & Whiskey, focus on the fictional town of Hefner Falls and transport readers to various points in history, including the Great Depression and the Reconstruction era. While history plays a part, my stories are character driven.

I’m a little bit obsessed with William Faulkner (like that’s a bad thing?!), and yes, I drink Sweet Tea by the gallons.

I also am thinking of an attempt at World Domination in Scattergories… you’ve been warned!

When I Met Crazy In The Morning: Mae's Tale has whetted my appetite for more from this writer! In this short story, I can feel the heat of the morning, understand Mae's anxiety and fears and begin to know Josephine. Through these well chosen words, I can see the red dirt on my shoes and even smell the okra frying in the pan! Well done, Ms. McGuire! Can't wait for your revamp of Josephine!

This is a writer with character, or should I say many of them, and each one more memorable than the last. If you like Faulkner, you will fall in love with these people and Melinda McGuire's story. Each page made me yearn for more as I unraveled their story and savored the rich atmosphere. Congratulations to this very talented writer!
