Craig Dirgo is an American author of techno thrillers and adventure novels, as well as non-fiction. He started off co-authoring with Clive Cussler on his non-fiction work. He soon moved to his own novels starring his character, John Taft, an agent of a fictitious US spy agency, the National Intelligence Agency. He co-authored with Cussler the first two "Oregon Files" novels.

After running projects at Cussler's National Underwater and Marine Agency group since 1987, he became a trustee of the organization.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Dirgo was born to an Air Force Colonel, and spent much of his youth around American and British airfields. Having become interested in a collection of cars owned by Cussler, he eventually went to work for NUMA. From 1987 he was Special Projects director on several expeditions, and remains a trustee.[1]
