Craig Dirgo is the best-selling author of The Einstein Papers, The Tesla Documents, Gunnison Grit and New South Britain. He also co-authored several books with the masterful Clive Cussler including The Sea Hunters I and II, Golden Buddha and Sacred Stone – all New York Times bestsellers.
One of six children of an Air Force Colonel, Dirgo grew up on air bases in the United States and England before finally settling in Colorado.
A part-time job washing and waxing classic cars led to meeting Clive Cussler, acclaimed author and founder of NUMA National Underwater and Marine Agency, a non-profit historical research foundation. When an opportunity arose to co-author a book about NUMA, Cussler asked Dirgo to take on the task. The result was the New York Times bestseller, The Sea Hunters. This was followed by Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt Revealed and The Sea Hunters II.
While working with Cussler, Dirgo also began writing on his own and soon thereafter published his first John Taft adventure, The Einstein Papers.
Eventually taking some time away from ocean adventures and writing, Dirgo formed several small businesses, moved back to the mountains he loves and concentrated on skiing and hiking. In 2010-11, he skied 115 days thus achieving a lifelong goal of skiing over 100 days in a season.
In 2012 Dirgo published his first eBook novel, Gunnison Grit, which he followed with re-issues in electronic format of The Einstein Papers and The Tesla Documents (originally published in paperback under the title Tremor.) This year Dirgo wrote and published another eBook exclusive, the Civil War saga New South Britain. Dirgo has several new projects on the drawing board, including another John Taft action/adventure.
