Craig Davis was born and bred in Memphis, Tenn., during the dying days of Jim Crow, what Flannery O'Connor called the Christ-Haunted South. After
earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism at University of
Missouri, he toiled for 20 years in various newsrooms as a columnist, designer,
artist and cartoonist. Writing fiction since 2004, he has produced
four novels and a number of short stories, essays and Bible studies. Davis is currently working on a new collection of Christian Gothic short stories, to be titled "Red Hair Rising," one story from which is represented by the video above. He has two grown daughters and
a dog who refuses to grow up, and was once wrestled to the ground by a set of bagpipes.
