Craig Rogers experienced a breakup that led him to start writing about relationships for a website focused on breakup recovery. This led to a blog about re-entering the dating scene, and his first book, The 49th Challenge, a guide to breakup recovery, reinvention, and re-entry into dating. His column, New Jersey Date Night, combines his love of food and experience in relationships. Craig’s next book, Love Lessons from a Slutty Family, is scheduled for a 2021 release. A Columbus, Ohio native, Craig moved to Manhattan after college and considers himself a true New Yorker who happens to be a big fan of Ohio State football. Craig’s home base is with his husband in Madison, Wisconsin and he splits his time between there, Columbus and New Jersey.
