The Awakened Spirit - A New Work By Craig Lock
I want to write stories that matter a lot to me, in terms of my deepest values. True stories from people's lives in history, that are worth sharing with others, as they have great meaning regarding the universal human condition. I write about ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times, that hopefully uplift and impact others through certain people's great generosity of spirit inherent in the human condition to overcome great obstacles or adversity in their lives!)
In short, I try to write inspirational stories of ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times; so my writings are about the indomitable and unquenchable strength of the human spirit.

"My writing mission is through my words to inform, illuminate, entertain, uplift, delight, as well as hopefully even inspiring people. I aim to do this by sharing my knowledge and life experiences - through supporting, encouraging and empowering others to be the best person they can possibly be."

"I truly want to let the light shine through my words to impact and help others...to inspire people throughout our
(sometimes happy and sometimes dark and sad, yet always beautiful and magical) world."

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. A NEW DAWN: An awakening of spirit... a new heart.

Underlying themes (threads) of choices, hope, faith, forgiveness and love., told against the backdrop of a troubled and exciting continent. Craig Lock's new work is a story of ordinary men and women (like you and me), whose strong sense of justice and decency led to their making their own unique contribution to the liberation of South Africa. The stories in my new work not only shine a light on South Africa's turbulent and often dark past, but tell us something about the present and how one man's freedom fighter, like Nelson Mandela can be another's terrorist...and to another, a "hero liberator". (It just depends upon ones perspective). Therefore, it is vitally important to understand the mind of a person. And that is the mindset we are truly going to have to understand to "win this current 'war against terror'". So, by only looking to history, we always find something, a ray of hope to illuminate the present and the future.
