Hal McFarland

Hal McFarland is a Burlington, Kentucky native, a graduate of Georgetown and Xavier Universities. He also attended Butler University and, in Germany, the Goethe Institute.

He is a retired school counselor as well as a former speech and drama teacher, and has been named Kentucky Forester of the Year. He has written a local best-selling historical fiction novel called A Dream within a Dream, a story of the 1943 Boone County Kiger murders. For this novel, in 2009, he was awarded The Anne W. Fitzgerald Research Award by the Historic Preservation Review Board. Hal has been invited to discuss this book with such diverse groups as The Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club, Boone County Library, Campbell County Library, the Gallatin County HS Forensic Science Classes, and numerous private book clubs throughout Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. He is a member of the Boone County Historical Society as well as a former member of The Boone County Historic Preservation Board.

This is his third journey into the realm of fiction, the others being the co-authoring of The Life and Time of Dexter and, in addition to the novel mentioned above, his most recent novel, Fear the Moonlight.

In 2010, he co-authored a two-act play called Farewell To Rosegate, which was produced by The Union Community Theater and performed at Ryle Theater in Union, Kentucky.

Hal, with his wife, Barbara, (also an author and playwright) lives on a Western Boone County, Kentucky farm, in a 19th century barn which he, over the course of a decade, converted into their home.
