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

In his various writings Craig strives in some small way to break down and economic, social, cultural and religious barriers. Craig believes that whilst we should celebrate our differences, what we share in the form of our common humanity is way more important than what divides us.

The various books that Craig “felt inspired to write”are available at:
