  Charmaine Craig studied literature at Harvard College, and received her MFA from the University of California, Irvine. The Good Men is her first novel. Formerly an actor, she is now on the faculty in the Department of Creative Writing at UC Riverside. Her second novel, nearing completion, is inspired by the life of her mother, once Miss Burma and leader of an insurgent army brigade. She is married to novelist Andrew Winer.
