'''Crawdad Nelson''' was born in 1958, and raised in Fort Bragg, California where he developed interests in literature and the world at large. In high school he worked on the staff of the ''Timberwolf How''l as well as anchoring a cable news program and working on the air at a local radio station as part of a high school media class. This early interest in journalism led him down a twisted path which would include poetry and fiction as well as the non-fiction essays and articles which still appear from time to time in underground publications like New Settler Interview and America's last newspaper, the Anderson Valley Advertiser.

At the age of 18 he officially entered the working class as a sawmill laborer, and implicitly understood that any relationship he would have to the mainstream literary world would be as some sort of antagonist. With this understanding, he began to publish poetry and prose in 1986, after several years of work and study. He was quickly labeled a ''Working Class Poet'' by middle class poetry folks, then began to be identified as a ''Nature Poet'' upon moving to Arcata, Callifornia, in 1989. He never felt comfortable with either label and stubbornly clung to the label ''Writer''.
