Born and raised on Boston's North Shore, Craig Caulfield left Emerson College after his freshman year to seek adventure. He maneuvered through a number of occupations while pursing the craft of writing in Boston, New York, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Reno, Chicago, and Miami-before returning to his studies at the University of Vermont in 2001. Reviewer David Kaslow called his non-fiction book Ruggles Street, "A Bach Fugue of a book." In 2005 Craig received a BA in English and History from UVM, graduating with Honors. A Pale Horse, his short story in the Trinity College Dublin Master's Program's anthology titled Incorrigibly Plural, was singled out by the Irish Book Review for praise in 2006. Craig received an MA in Creative Writing from TCD in 2007. Since the winter of 2008 he has made his home in Moscow, where he draws on his diverse life experiences while working on his fiction.
