    Hubert Creekmore was born on January 16, 1907 in Water Valley, Mississippi. At a young age Creekmore developed an interest in writing poems and stories. This interest continued to develop over the years through education. In 1927, he graduated from the University of Mississippi and would later receive a Masters degree in American Literature from Columbia University. Creekmore's first volume of poetry, Personal Sun, was published in 1940. Soon thereafter he joined the United States Navy and served in World War II from 1942-1945. His passion for writing continued and he was able to write his second volume of poetry, The Stone Ants, while stationed in the Pacific. After World War II he worked as an editor, free-lance writer, teacher, lecturer, and translator before eventually returning to writing full time. In 1946, his first novel, The Fingers of Night, was published followed by two more novels in subsequent years. Hubert Creekmore died on May 23, 1966 in New York.
