WHAT IF YOU COULD REWRITE YOUR LIFE?

Sycamore Shadows, Ohio. 1987. For over forty years whispers have followed Robinson Hardy, the reclusive misanthrope who only leaves his house at night, roaming the shadowy streets while the town sleeps. He has no friends. Few people have seen his face. No one knows his story. 

Until he dies, and the manuscript of a novel is found among his papers.

Racked by regrets and scarred by fate, Robinson Hardy has rewritten the story of his life. He has purged his misdeeds and sent his characters on a comical romp into his ideal past, from the bucolic town of his youth to Great War France. But in this coming-of-age testament to resilience and redemption, Robinson has unexpectedly uncovered a mystery, one connected to the haunting memory of a woman he cannot forget. Through that mystery flows the whispering symphony of a stream known as Tucker’s Run.

About Craig

When Craig is not writing books he reads books, collects books, binds books, and stares at books, which probably explains why he can never remember what he's doing in the kitchen. He has written a weekly newspaper column and has worked as a fine artist, muralist, and cartographer. His art has been exhibited in the United States and Europe, and his prints have sold throughout the world, but he's still broke. In addition to books and art, Craig enjoys lecturing on history, fly fishing and fly tying, making hats, collecting vinyl, playing guitar and banjo (not well), firearms, and birdwatching. Craig divides his time between his home in northeastern Ohio and his fictional home in Sycamore Shadows, located in his Imaginactory World, where he plans to retire. He is married and has three children. Tucker's Run is his first novel. You may read Craig's fictional biography here. (It's better than the real one.)
