When Jane, Skip Crayton’s wife of thirty-seven years died, he felt like he’d died with her. Skip knew that there would be life after death for Jane, but he never thought there would be life after her death for him. Stages of grief vary from person to person—many get angry and many focus that anger on God. As Skip wandered through the wilderness of life without Jane, one thing kept him going—his faith in God. He knew that without God, getting through the worst time in his life would be almost impossible. Life After Death is the story of how Skip struggled through Jane’s illness as her caretaker. How, after being given a miraculous gift of healing, only weeks later found Jane fighting a totally different disease, one that would quickly take her life. Skip’s story is not just one of despair, it is how faith in God can show us how He will reach out to us and carry us through the toughest times of our lives. It’s also a story of promise and inspiration—a story of how God led Skip to find a new soul mate in Carol and a son in Sam, a son he never thought he’d have. It is the story of how God brought Skip back into the light of the living and gave him Life After Death—a promise He makes to all who have faith in Him.

Skip Crayton is a lifelong resident of New Bern, a small town in coastal North Carolina, located on the Neuse River, the widest river in America. An avid sailor, his love for the river is only exceeded by his passion for writing. Upon graduating from New Bern High School, Skip entered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. After graduating from college, he headed off for a short tour of duty in the United States Navy, where he learned to fly. With his military obligation complete, Skip joined his father in the family construction and land development business. He started writing seriously in 1991. Over the last twenty years, Skip has written one journal, two novels, and two short stories. In 1998, he was asked to write a column for The Trent Woods Times, a monthly published in his community. The success of that column led to a contract with his local newspaper, The Sun Journal, a daily with a circulation of more than twenty thousand. In 2005, those columns were compiled into Skip's first book, the very successful Remember When, now in its third printing. His last book, a love story titled The Letter Sweater, is also in its third printing and has broken the top 100 on Amazon's Kindle. His newest book, Life After Death will be released in July of 2011. Skip is married to the love of his life Carol and they have one son, Sam. They also share their home with three dogs—Socker, Little Mutt, and Bodie—and one cat, Mister.
