Apart from some years in the UK (current location) and months in the US Craig Smith has lived most of his life in South Africa. (Everywhere from PE to Cape Town). Having a wild imagination from ever since he could remember he finally decided to take advantage of it when he was 19, and began writing seriously. Since then he has written 3 novels, numerous short stories and started 3 other novels. He hopes to finish them all sometime this decade. Check out his blog for his latest flash fiction pieces. A new one is posted every Friday.
Larry has the rare ability to make his characters and situations feel lifelike, for instance even though the murder victim is an alien the characters aren't running around screaming thinking they had lost their minds, they approached the situation rationally and logically. Granted some people wouldn't be able to handle it, but being a cop and an EMT they've seen their fair share of odd things.
Overall I thought the story was nicely paced, the characters were interesting and the X-Files references made me smile.
