#104 Andrew McBride

Andrew McBride, Western Author, is displayed holding a rifle stylzed as an oil painting set in a western town.


Andrew McBride fell in love with westerns after watching western movies, particularly those starring John Wayne and/or directed by John Ford, TV shows like The High Chaparral and reading novels such as A.B. Guthrie’s The Big Sky, John Prebble’s The Buffalo Soldiers, Thomas Berger’s Little Big Man, and Elmore Leonard’s Hombre.

He’s had five westerns published: Canyon of the Dead, Death Wears a Star, Death Song, The Arizona Kid, and Shadow Man. All these novels feature Calvin Taylor, who is also the hero of The Peacemaker, which Sundown Press published in June 2016.
Andrew lives in Brighton, England, by the English Channel.
