Skip Crayton

Biography

Skip Crayton is a lifelong resident of New Bern, a small town in coastal North Carolina, located on the Neuse River, the widest river in America. An avid sailor, his love for the river is only exceeded by his passion for writing.
Upon graduating from New Bern High School, Skip entered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. After graduating from college, he married his high school sweetheart, Jane Cox, and then headed off for a short tour of duty in the United States Navy, where he learned to fly. With his military obligation complete, Skip joined his father in the family construction and land development business.

He started writing seriously in nineteen ninety-one. Over the last thirteen years, Skip has written one journal, two novels, and two short stories. His latest book, a love story titled The Letter Sweater, is now in the hands of his agent, who is actively seeking publication.

In nineteen ninety-eight, he was asked to write a column for The Trent Woods Times, a monthly published in his community. The success of that column led to a contract with his local newspaper, The Sun Journal, a daily with a circulation of over twenty-thousand.

Skip and Jane have been married for thirty-six years and have no children. They share their home with two Pekinese dogs, Thumper and Little Mutt, and two cats, Mister and Bob.
