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 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.

About the Author
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 married his high school sweetheart, Jane Cox, and then 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 nineteen ninety-one. Over the last thirteen years, Skip has written one journal, two novels, and two short stories. His latest book, a love story titled The Letter Sweater, is now in the hands of his agent, who is actively seeking publication. In nineteen ninety-eight, 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 over twenty-thousand. Skip and Jane have been married for thirty-six years and have no children. They share their home with two Pekinese dogs, Thumper and Little Mutt, and two cats, Mister and Bob.
