Thomas Allan McCoy is a direct descendant of the original McCoy family that was involved in the start of the feud between the Hatfields and McCoys, and an author of new Western books of realistic fiction.
His new book series, The McCoys Before The Feud, is about what the real McCoys would have done during the events portrayed in the novels. Being a direct descendant of the real McCoys (The original family that started the feud) gives him an insight as to their character and how their actions would have played out.
Thomas blends factual events of the 1860s with his own ideas and literary devices. The writing in these new Western books is in the traditional Western style, presented in an enjoyable, readable fashion that leads to entertaining storylines and an interconnected reading experience.
