A resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico for over 30 years, Bill Pinnell grew up in Missouri. A baseball fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, Pinnell likes to read Westerns, mysteries, and history. Alma de la Gente is a book that Pinnell wrote years ago and was originally published by Avalon with the title "Terror on the Border." Spurs, Pinnell's second Western, is exclusive to Kindle. Pinnell is working on a mystery-political satire.
