Born, raised, and currently living in Oregon, Wesley McCraw writes speculative fiction. Right now he is focused on horror and sci-fi. Next, maybe it will be romantic, comedic fantasy.
Wes graduated from the University of Oregon, where he completed the much-acclaimed Kidd Tutorial, a one-year intensive writing clinic which he hated, partly because it threw out genre fiction in favor of literary fiction. During his time at the university, he was also a member of Write Club, where he trained under screenwriter Omar Naim (The Final Cut, Dead Awake).
Wes's first novel, The Forgiving, was based on a screenplay of the same name. He plans on adapting more of his screenplays in the future, including Brief Pose, the 2011 winner of the StoryPros screenplay competition in the sci-fi/fantasy/horror category.
Wes is now working on the second volume of the multi-installment epic, House of Cabal, and a book of Lovecraftian short stories entitled The Queen in Yellow.
