About the Writer

About twenty-five years ago, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ….and with nothing else to do, Craig started writing. And now about 150 books later…

SOME OF CRAIG’S THOUGHTS ON THE WRITING JOURNEY:

“I love to write about, share stories of the resilience and courage of ordinary (what’s that?) people.”

-Craig loves to write about similar uplifting, empowering and inspiring themes in his various books.

He has a ‘passion’ for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally so cruel, yet always amazing world He loves ‘telling tales’, sharing true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and perhaps hopefully even inspired. He loves to try to “test his writing limits and imagination ”

“I truly believe in the triumph of the human spirit; so love writing about and sharing stories of ‘seemingly ordinary’ (what’s that?) people and the resilience of humanity.”

“A book is small enough to hold in your hand; but when you read it, the walls fall away and you’re in a room as big as the world.”

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.”
– Chinese proverb

“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside a dog it’s too hard to read.”

– Groucho Marx

“I write because I simply HAVE to”

“Writers help readers to see the world differently.”

“I write because something inside myself, inner and unconscious forces me to.” That is the first compulsion. The second is one of ethical and moral duty.”

“I write about and believe in the resilience of humanity- I truly believe in the triumph of the human spirit.”

“I really value words and the power of them to communicate effectively; so in my various stories try to illustrate and then let readers draw their own conclusions about a certain scenario, as well as the characters searching for their own values in an increasingly complex social and political landscape. However, I do feel an obligation to give a complete picture of the situation, which is often not a clear-cut ‘black or white’ issue (as in South Africa). I never want to proscribe how people should think and feel my only duty as a writer is to be totally honest.”

All our dreams can come true… if we have the passion and courage to pursue them.”

“Life is about finding, then following the dream and one’s
dream/vision comes to reality through believing in yourself,
making the commitment and then creating it.”
