BOOKS BY CRAIG LOCK

About the writer

Craig 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 make art through writing and words are my tools.”

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.

I was extremely fortunate to receive this book; it turned out to be one I didn’t know I needed to read. When I opened the package, the first thing that struck me was the gorgeous cover; the girl in the red dress under a tree full with purple blossom. The tree I think is some kind of jacaranda. The blurb on the back reads:

‘This is the sweet memory of Mme, my dear mother. The first sweet memory…sometimes her laughter bursts into my head or I hear her call me – my name full and round in…
