About the Author:

George Cadogan Gardner McKay was born in Manhattan, New York City. His early years were spent in France, Connecticut and Kentucky. At age fifteen, he published his first story. He attended Cornell University where he edited the humor magazine, wrote a film review column for the paper, and was briefly president of his class. He rowed on their crew. He has been awarded several prizes for his writing:- The Drama Critics Award for playwriting, the Sydney Carrington Prize. He won three National Endowment for the Arts grants for playwriting. Five of his play have been published by Samuel French Publishing Company, Sea Marks, Masters of the Sea, Toyer, Me, In Order of Appearance. McKay’s plays have been, and continue to be, produced in every state in the union and internationally. Sea Marks won the National Regional Theatre Award in Canada. The Drama Critics Circle Award, best play of the year, and has been produced in NYC in many Off-Broadway productions - among them the Players Theatre (“Best Off- Broadway Play, Walter Kerr, New York Times) the Manhattan Theatre Club, and other theatres.

McKay’s play Untold Damage (PBS) Written and directed by McKay for PBS, was cited as the best television production by Television Theatre. McKay was Drama critic and Drama editor for the Los Angeles Herald Tribune.

He taught playwriting at U.C.L.A at his Playwriting Roundtable. Later he taught playwriting and screenwriting at University of Southern California, Juneau Alaska, and the University of Hawaii. McKay’s novels include Toyer (a novel, which won critical acclaim upon its release in 1998 and is currently in pre-production for a major motion film). Journey Without a Map(autobiography).
