Craig has taken his more than twenty years of experience in the Marine Corps, his legal education, and his business consulting career to write believable characters living in a real world.
Although Craig has written in multiple genres, what he believes most compelling are in-depth characters dealing with real-world issues. Just like Star Trek, the original series used a back drop of space, the themes related to modern day America. Life lessons of a great story can be applied now or fifty years in the future. Some things are universal.
Through a bizarre series of events, Craig ended up in Fairbanks, Alaska. He never expected to retire to a place where golf courses are only open for four months out of the year. But he love it there. It is off the beaten path. He and his wife watch the northern lights from their driveway. Their dog has lots of room to run. And temperatures reach forty below zero. They have from three and a half hours of daylight in the winter to twenty four hours in the summer.

Its all part of the give and take of life. If they didn't have those extremes, then everyone would live there.

The Bone Shroud (2018)
Jean Rabe
"Jean Rabe uses her mastery of flowing prose to immerse you in a world of archaeological intrigue. From the art world to the underworld, keep your mind sharp as the bread crumbs she leaves are there to find if you read with your eyes wide open. With an intrigue reminiscent of Michael Crichton, I expect you'll like this book as much as I did."
