Craig Martelle is an international bestselling author who writes in various genres but is probably best known for his science fiction books. He also writes the Ian Bragg thrillers. The fourth book in that series, A FATAL BRAGG, was published on November 26th.
Craig retired from the Marine Corps, spending time both as enlisted and as an officer. After retiring from the military, he went to law school and went into business consulting, which kept him way from home too much, so he retired from that at age 52. That’s when he started writing full time and he hasn’t looked back since.
He his well known in the indie author-publisher community for the 20Booksto50k® group — 55K+ members in the Facebook Group he runs alongside with its founder Michael Anderle and the 20Books Conference that Craig puts on every year in Las Vegas. It’s one of the best writer’s conference out there. I’ve attended three conferences, including the one this year and am planning to be there in 2022.
During the interview we talked about Craig’s background, his writing career — writing thrillers and other genres, including non-fiction, about the 20Books Conference, and a lot more.

The 20Books Conference info here, especially if you’re intrested in joining. Tickets for the 2022 conference in November open up on January 8, 2022 and they have sold out in the past.
Cool video about the 20Books Conference which we talked about during the interview. This is from the 2018 conference. The conference is now held on the Strip vs. Sam’s Town, which I prefer.
