Craig English was born in Los Angeles, California in 1957. The son of a journalist Robert Arthur English, some of Craig's earliest memories are the sound of a massive black Royal typewriter's keys smacking out a story on a deadline. Early influences include J.R.R. Tolkien, the Los Angeles Times, and later on, a fascination with the theater. Craig's writing is strongly influenced by the drama, cadence and tradition of the performing arts. He is an advocate for each character's strong, clear voice, and he loves storytelling that pulls like a riptide. He writes fiction and nonfiction, journal articles, and poetry. His most recent novel, The Anvil of Navarre, pays homage to classic swashbuckling adventure stories, while delving into the politics of gender and sexuality. Craig's current project is an urban fantasy/mystery novel, Dragons Among Us. He is the co-author of Anxious to Please: 7 Revolutionary Practices for the Chronically Nice, Sourcebooks, Inc. (Spanish and Greek translations).
In 1982, Craig graduated from the University of Washington Professional Actor Training Program and worked for 25 years as an actor specializing in Shakespeare, fight choreography, CD-ROM game voice-over, and commercials. He lives with his partner in Seattle, Washington.
