Author Biography
Bixel, Patricia Bellis (Editor)
Born and raised in Texas, Gary Cartwright graduated from Texas Christian University. In the ten years after graduation, Cartwright worked for five different newspapers. After successfully publishing his first book, a novel called The Hundred Yard War, Cartwright became a freelance writer.

Named associate editor for Texas Monthly in 1982, where he now holds senior editor duties, Cartwright has written a handful of screenplays and just as many books. A life-altering heart attack, which required a quintuple bypass and a pacemaker, inspired Cartwright to write the book Heartwiseguy: How to Live the Good Life After a Heart Attack, a memoir that also gives practical advice and valuable tips.
