About Craig Crawford
Craig got interested in writing in middle school. He met up with a guy who introduced him to RPG's, fantasy and science fiction, and most importantly, the idea of writing stories. Studying writing all through high school and college, he continued creating stories.
His first publication came with a gaming company called Palladium Books, creating an index for their role playing game, Rifts. The success of the first led to a second. After he concentrated on fiction, and in 2008 he connected with a group called the Wolf Pirate Project who taught him all about writing and editing.
More recently, he's gotten hooked on writing short stories and has published ten to date with various small presses and magazines.
You can find out more about him and his stories at his website.
