Craig Kingsman writes about murders because committing them would be a real bummer for the victim. He discovered his joy of murder mysteries at a teen and always thought it would be fun to write them. His short story, “The Butler Did It”, a murder mystery that takes place in a butler school, was in the 2018 anthology “A Year of the Monkeys”.
A long career in computer programming got in his way of writing fiction. But he did learn about murder by executing programs and killing bugs. He authored or co-authored two books and dozens of magazine articles that have been read by programmers all over the world. He’s also worked as a radio disk jockey and once worked for the circus.
Craig is President of The Usual Suspects chapter of the League a Utah Writers, on the board of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Mystery Writers of America and a member of Sisters in Crime. He has presented at writer conferences and events. Craig lives in beautiful Wasatch mountains of Utah with his wife and award winning writer Laurie Heath.
