Caleb Crain writes fiction and non-fiction. His new novel is Necessary Errors.
In our interview, Caleb shares some of his inspirations and the reason his website is called Steamboats are Ruining Everything.
He earned his Ph.D. from the English department at Columbia University. He returned several years later as an adjunct assistant professor at Columbia.
He enjoyed teaching but his real passion is writing. His website has links to a zillion cool articles he’s written for a number of magazines. I asked if he’s actually a brainiac in dozens of different topics. He says that he just does a lot of research, writes the articles, then promptly forgets the information. I think he has to push the facts out of his head so he can fill it with new facts!
After his book tour,Caleb says he has a few articles he has to finish. Then he’ll start thinking about writing another book.
