One evening at the close of the 1970’s, Craig Sorensen sat on a milk crate overlooking Tenth Avenue and waited for a customer to break up the monotony. It may not seem earth shattering now, but to a man not yet twenty years of age, the sudden revelation that came to him would be defining in ways he had yet to fathom: There had to be more to life than pumping gas.
A strange answer materialized in the cold, dry Treasure Valley, Idaho air.
Sorensen joined the US Army where he learned to work with computers not long before the introduction of the PC. Armed with a blitzkrieg education in the programming language COBOL, he embarked on a journey to define himself as a soldier, programmer, businessman, manager and in creative pursuits. Many life changes later he finally submitted to his first passion: Writing.
A fascination with sexuality and a love of both beauty and ugliness that makes getting up in the morning worthwhile brought Sorensen’s writing to the fertile ground that is erotica. Though he works in other genres, he is most comfortable when sensuality is an important element. By combining this with his perspective on life changes he found his creative voice. His short stories on the power of erotic expression and change have appeared anthology collections by editors including Alison Tyler, Kristina Wright, Maxim Jakubowski, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Sacchi Green / Rakelle Valencia and others. He can also be found at various websites dedicated to fine erotica like Clean Sheets, The Erotic Woman and Oysters & Chocolate.
While he continues to write short stories, Sorensen’s focus has shifted toward novella and novel length works. He recently completed a novel that focuses on those pivotal days after he joined the Army and landed in a National Security Agency installation in West Germany.
After years of moving from coast to coast of the USA and beyond, Sorensen is currently tenuously settled in south-central Pennsylvania with his supportive wife and family.
