Gary McKinney lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two children. He joined his first rock-and-roll band at age sixteen, and worked professionally through the 70's and into the 80's. Along the way he worked with the country's premier Jimi Hendrix tribute show, an Elvis impersonator, and a 14-year-old Shania Twain wannabe. Through some madness that still doesn't scan, he earned a master's degree in creative writing while studying music in Los Angeles. Currently he works as a technical writer, though he continues to play acoustic rock-and-roll with Fritz & the Freeloaders, and will until they pry the guitar from his cold, dead fingers.
