Schreiner University announced its annual “Novel, TX: Writers of the Texas Hill Country” Lecture Series with featured speaker, award-winning Texas author, W. W. McNeal.
McNeal, a retired trial lawyer, songwriter and sixth-generation Texan lives on a Caldwell County ranch in Central Texas that has been in his family since 1850. The 436-acre spread backing up to the San Marcos River was purchased from the first grantees, and the original 1850 deed to the property is locked securely in a desk that belonged to his great-grandfather. McNeal has been a long-time student of history, particularly Texas history. He grew up on the ranch he lives on now, an only child fascinated by Texas lore and the natural environment that surrounded him.
