Hello, I am Craig C. Velez, poet, author, musician, husband, father, grandfather, teacher, mentor, Harley Davidson enthusiast, and overall gadabout sloth…the unique collection of DNA that makes me!
I am a native of Brooklyn, New York (before it was “cool”). I currently live in Fort Worth, Texas with my teenage son, adult daughter, three wonderful grandchildren, and the most wonderful wife a man could ever desire. I teach writing and literature in an inner city high school, and when I get the chance, I write about the humorous encounters I have with the people I meet every day. I also enjoy cooking, comic books, and cavorting about with the people I love.
The way to know me is to read my works or follow me on Facebook or Instagram. I am also open interviews, if that’s more your style.
If you have any specific questions about me, what I do, how I do it, or my works (stories or poems), please feel free to contact me. If you are still reading this…thank you very much!
Yours sincerely, Craig
