About the Author

I’ve been writing about my passions since
1993.

Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty
years in South Africa, Australia (briefly) and New Zealand. However, 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, he started writing. Five published
books later (well they turned out to be a vanity publisher and he and his
family lost everything, their life savings, including the kitchen sink* – that
episode is a book in itself!). Now many years later, “recovering“, having
written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects – well what
else is there to do here?)… this is where Craig is in the
“journey/adventure” that is life.

Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful
creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). Together with his “technowhizz” friend,
Bill Rosoman, he was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative
writing course on the internet and this has developed to new writing and
publishing courses we have introduced on our new Creative Kiwis.com website
(www.creative kiwis.com)

* that’s a metaphor, btw (“by the way”)

*

Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in
the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different
people “tick-tock grandfather clock”. He is fascinated by the
“overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality”.

One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden
potential and so finding their niche in life… so that they are happy.

Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather “eventful”
life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and
themes, then as a contrast “rather crazy, wacky stuff”…to keep him
sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: “All of us are born mad; some
of us remain so.”

Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than
headlines like “Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman” and “Beach Toilet
Closed for Season.”. True!

The “writer” loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can
possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from
the “school of life” (still “battered and bruised”) and
also from a few “hard knocks on the head”. He is an extensive world
traveller (on a “shoestring budget”) and failed professional
emigrater who has spent most of his lifes savings on airfares. He is still
sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that
is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica.
There he talks to the 60 million sheep!

So here goes…

# HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE

Craig Lock is an extensive world traveller and failed professional emigrater
who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still ‘sliding down
the razor blade of life’, stuck on a deserted (other than a few brilliant rugby
players) island at the bottom of the world near Antarctica, where he is ‘trying
to throw a double six’ to get off and go out into the real world – but he
doesn’t know where!

In the style of Bill Bryson, HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE tells tales of his
hilarious hair-raising adventures in his younger years through ‘Grate’ Britain
and the Continent.

‘’Dropped out in Godzone‘’: Craig Lock’s humorous travel book about his
adventures in provincial New Zealand…

One man and his family – and their experiences “Down Under”.

The author and his wife contrast life in colourful, vibrant South Africa with
calm and kindly New Zealand – and with large dashes of humour offer much
understanding of, and sympathy with the social attitudes of the two worlds.

A new immigrant’s impressions of life in provincial New Zealand (after coming
from a large city in South Africa) … and there were one or two rather funny
adventures, nay escapades in “Sleepy Hollow” from time to time!

REVIEW:

“DROPPED OUT IN GODZONE is an original and agreeable piece of work. The
picture it gives of New Zealand- to one who has never been there- has a ring of
complete authenticity. The feeling of the country is relaxed, and perhaps
rather un-stimulating, but we get an overall impression from the writer that he
views his time there with some affection, and above all with tolerance.”

This book breathes a natural humour and kindliness, which is what gives it the
individual character that is so appealing.

Autobiography has a particular value as a literary form. It is a shared kind of
writing and I’ll continue to bang the drum. It is unusual to encounter two such
different manuscripts from the same author. Both (THE END OF THE LINE is the
other book) have quality and share an easy and assured writing style that is a
pleasure to read.

Both of these short books are of first rate quality.”

Craig is presently working on his latest novel ‘The Awakened Spirit’, based on
some true and inspiring stories of the indomitable human spirit, that lies
within each one of us. Stories of endless possibilities.

He firmly believes in the motto: “Find what you love doing, then you will
never have to do a days work in your life.” Craig is certain he has found
his niche in life… anyway, what other job would be suitable for him?

##

PPS: Well there WAS a big earthquake here in “Sleepy Hollow” some
years back with buildings damaged. It made international news (so sad about the
Christchurch disaster)!

********

Craig has a ‘passion’ for writing books that tell stories about people doing
positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally
cruel, yet always amazing world – true stories that leave the reader feeling
uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. http://www.creativekiwis.com
and http://www.lulu.com/craiglock Craig’s mission is to encourage people to believe in
themselves and try to help inspire people around the world to achieve their
goals and dreams in life, whatever they may be. Craig is presently working on
his latest novel ‘The Awakened Spirit’,
based on some true and inspiring stories of the indomitable human spirit, that
lies within each one of us. Stories of endless possibilities.

He firmly believes in the motto: “Find what you love doing, then you will
never have to do a days work in your life.” Craig is certain he has found
his niche in life… anyway, what other job would be suitable for him?

The various books that Craig “felt inspired
to write” are available at : http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 www.creativekiwis.com/index.php/books/74-craigs-books https://www.xinxii.com/adocs.php?aid=16831 http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/craiglock + www.lulu.com/craiglock

Craig’s blog (with extracts from his various
writings: articles, books and new manuscripts) is at  wordpress.com

“The world’s smallest and most exclusive bookstore”

* Hard-copies and e-books, fiction and nonfiction:
self help, novels, travel, humour, writing, inspiration and money management

All proceeds go to needy and underprivileged
children –

MINE!

(enough of that negativity, cut it out right NOW
and start really believing, now “chappie”!)

“Yessir!”

 

So

“I’ll write till I drop!”

THE END …for now (at last)…

But the writing journey is a
never-ending story
