Craig Saunders is the author of over thirty novels and novellas, first published with 'RAIN' in 2011. Stories include 'Deadlift', 'Vigil' and 'Masters of Blood and Bone'.
Born in 1972 in London, England, Craig went on to do some stuff (like growing up - abridged version), but discovered growing up wasn't really that great. His childhood was spent reading horror novels and comics and watching Hellraiser and Bruce Lee films in Essex. He moved to Cardiff for a while and learned fancy things, lived in Japan and ate fancy things, before settling in Norfolk, England. In the last forty-odd years he's been a translator and interpreter, English teacher, editor, dog walker, carpenter, doorman, bagman, hitman, and a pole dancer.
He writes dark fiction/horror with an element of crime or mystery, and epic fantasy. His shorter fiction appears in various anthologies and magazines. Sometimes he dabbles with humour - but only when he's feeling serious.
He still lives.
