Craig Lock's
Adventures in

There are a number of parts to my personality,
as I am a very intense person.
I feel very strongly about them and am
trying to carve out a career from following
my passions. I like writing about things
that are very dear to my heart, which
I'll be brave enough to share with you.

So to try to make a difference on the other
side of the world, I started writing my
novels, with a main theme of tolerance and
reconciliation between the diverse peoples
of that beautiful country... but most of all,
hope for the future.

In my aims I hope
I've made some
difference to my
"Beloved Country",
however small.

Two of these novels,
The End Of The Line
The New Rainbow,
are the results of
my strong feelings.

---- Craig

A collection of writings on various subjects to help every man or
woman survive in a rapidly changing, uncertain world...after the easy living and
prosperity of the seventies and eighties.

An introductory look at the concepts of success, motivation, attitude, goal setting and stress.
Shows how to make "heaps" of MONEY (if that's what you really want out of life) with the
right mindset and by following your passions - the deepest desires of the heart.


Written in a simple style to help the 'every person’ make the most of themselves and 
their lives easier. It takes an introductory look at what motivates us and how to
set goals...to find our true purpose for being on this planet. Also how to handle the
stresses life throws at us. I found it very helpful for my own life.”
- Birgitta, Minerva Press (UK)

This is Craig Lock's first novel. A short novel set in "the beloved country".
A passionate and heartbreaking tale of South Africa, a true story of the bad old days,
but with the hope of the new.

“The End Of The Line” could be described as a “faction”, a fiction with a serious factual
grounding. It is simple, and therefore moving. It gives yet another highly individual portrait
of that troubled land, and it does so through a believable and sustained narrative form.”

as well as the inherent goodness within every human spirit.

Craig Lock is an extensive world traveler 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 
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.

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.

“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 - a ring of complete authenticity.
The feeling of the country is relaxed, and perhaps rather unstimulating, 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 humor 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.”

A moving tale of the diverse peoples of South Africa, which is based on fact.
Like Alan Paton, Craig Lock reaches to the heart of his troubled "beloved country".
In this new novel Lock, perceptively and with an understanding of the historical
elements, writes of the situation as it was, as it is, and as perhaps one day it will be, 
in the New South Africa.
