M.E. Kinkade (mekinkade) I saw some questions about Dallas authors, so I thought I'd try to answer. The DFW Writers Convention is a huge gathering of authors and aspiring authors all around the state, so there are quite a few authors.

Here are some I know of who live in the Dallas area (I have not read all of these books, however, so you'll have to try them out):

Between by Dora Hilburn, a YA paranormal romance

Door of the Heart by Diana Finfrock Farrar, a novel about LGBT issues and faith (and yes, she's related to the meteorologist!)

One Night In Sixes by Tex Thompson, a Western (there's also a sequel now)

Tracked by Jenny Martin, a YA science-fiction adventure

Compass Boys by Jeanne Guerra, a middle-grade Western

And, of course, the unimitable Rachel Caine, author of a ton of books. My personal favorites are her "Weather Warden" series. You can sometimes catch her at local signings! She's a cool lady.
