Craig Hart has been writing for going on twenty years. Born in Baytown, Texas, Hart is an editor, writer, publisher, and poet. His prose and poetry have been published both traditionally and independently. His love of language goes back to the day he learned to read. He read voraciously as a child, edited the high school journal, and wrote short stories during his teen years. At college he edited the campus newspaper. Once out of college, he began a popular online book review service. In 2007, he withdrew from reviewing to focus his attention on writing. Early in 2012 he founded The Rusty Nail literary magazine (www.rustynailmag.com) for which he now serves as editor-in-chief. He currently serves as publisher for Sweatshoppe Publications. Hart is a member of the American Society of Authors and Writers and currently lives in Rockford, Illinois where he continues to ply his craft.
