Cyra McFadden (born c. 1939) is an American writer, living in the San Francisco Bay Area.

McFadden's 1977 novel A Year in the Life of Marin County satirized the trendy lifestyles of the affluent residents of Marin County, California, just north of San Francisco. The highly successful book was made into a 1980 movie called Serial, starring Tuesday Weld and Martin Mull.

In 1986, McFadden wrote a very positively-reviewed personal memoir entitled A Family Memoir, in which she described her childhood growing up as the daughter of free-spirited parents. The book was a finalist for the Pulitzer that year. Her father, Cy Taillon, was arguably the most famous American rodeo announcer of the mid-20th century. After being out of print for several years, Rain or Shine was reprinted in 1998.

McFadden wrote a biweekly column for the San Francisco Examiner for six years, mostly in the 1980s, and was also a features writer for that daily newspaper.

She was born in Great Falls, Montana, and spent much of her childhood traveling with her parents on the rodeo circuit and living in Missoula, Montana.
