BWA Member Profile

Gary McBride


Gary dabbles in both long-form and short-form fiction, sometimes writing under a pen name (he won't tell you who). He also leads BWA's Writers Who Read monthly meetings, employing 'Literary Forensics' to investigate the writing techniques of authors who have published within the past eighteen months.


Examples of Gary's writing can be found on his website, A former marketing manager who has written countless white papers, a software engineer and a data scientist, Gary considers himself to be something of an all-round literary utility infielder, bridging the gap between the art of literature and the science of data analysis. In his spare time he plays the piano and hosts classical music programs on KGNU-FM.
