Craig R. Key was born in Fort Worth, Texas on December 7, 1983. Starting with drama courses in high school and moving on to larger college productions, he knew that his love for entertaining was beyond the simple stage and he began to branch out into screen writing and filmmaking.
Craig's first venture into epic storytelling on a micro-budget began with a three episode web-series titled "The Clay Chronicles" that was produced under his self funded production company Floor 13 Productions from 2003 to 2006. After the completion of the series, he went on to write additional short films from 2007 to 2012 including a handful of sketches for Floaters Comedy from Bad Apple Studios. His titles during production have included director, writer, actor, editor, and he has even written music for his projects.
On July 13, 2014, Craig completed his first novel, a dark fantasy titled, "A Sight Unseen," which he dedicated to his father Gary Key, who lost his battle with cancer on May 1, 2014. Almost a year later, Craig released his second book, a comedy/drama titled, "Counting Losses," on May 21, 2015. This one was dedicated to everyone who, like the author, suffers from clinical anxiety and/or depression.
