C.M. McGuire

Pay no attention to the winter coat I’m wearing in my headshot. I’m a born-and-raised Texan, where I still live near family and with my two cats (aka the needy terrors who prevent me from working at home).​

I started writing at a young age, much to the relief of my mother, whose ears needed a break from my nonstop stories. It was my passion for stories that led me to pursuing my major in history, minors in theater, and anthropology, and onto my current masters in Creative Writing. It also led me to my membership in the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.​

​My debut novel, Ironspark, came out on August 25, 2020.
