Craig C. Miller

Craig Miller is a graduate of Grand Valley State University. He lives in the lake-side town, Muskegon ("The Skee"), Michigan, literally within five minutes of two of the best beaches in the world. Throughout his writing career he has accumulated many rejection letters. When not writing, he can be found at one of the many local trashy bars. He fully expects his liver to crop out before the age of 50 and has already started looking for potential donors.

Story: Skee-Town Hustling


Each week authors will be given a new question to answer which will lend additional insight into their story and writing process. Do you have a question you'd like to see the authors answer? Tweet it to @aNextAuthor!

What is the best writing advice you've ever heard?
"You're not a writer unless you write." - Some guy
When you start a new story do you prepare an outline in advance or do you just jump right in?
I normally have a vision in my head (almost like an outline in a way), then I just start writing.

Wow, this was a very interesting story that had me thinking the guy would definately do her, and he doesn't. Maybe shilvary isn't dead? lol I loved the story and it kept me interested until the end. I almost could have hugged the guy in the end! Thank you for writing this story and I look forward to reading more stories from you! If you could spare a minute or two would you please read my story "Hiding in Plain Sight" and leave a review? thank you~
