I taught myself to read by age 4 and by age 6 I had started writing my own stories. I published my first novel at age 40, so it only took me 34 years to become an overnight success. Now at age 52, I have approximately 26 novels in print. I'm a single father with custody of a very energetic 7 year old son as well as his three older brothers and sisters. I have a large number of grandchildren and this year was blessed with my first great grandchild.
I spent many years doing all sorts of jobs and learned something from each of them. Life is a constant journey and learning experience. Every bruise every scar we bear is a testament to what we have endured and forges us into the person that we are.
All of my characters tend to grow through what they endure, so I have translated some of my experiences into theirs or to imagine theirs. I feel this makes them very relatable to the average reader and makes the reader care about what happens to them. I am currently working on a number of projects including the next books in the Decker P.I. series, the next HArdluck Hannigan book, the next Jericho Walls, Texas Ranger title and a brand new sci-fi adventure titled Atlantis Rising. Hope to see you all soon!
Bill Craig's Valley of Death is action adventure at it's best! Good plotting and interesting characters send the story along at the break-neck pace of a rollercoaster ride! Once you start reading you won't put it down! Jack Riley is one of the best new fictional heros to come into the new millenium!
