"The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it."

- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

"We can all use the internet to reach out to the "global community" and build a better world in this new "Information Revolution" that is upon us. Let's use it wisely, respect our diversity and unique cultures; but elebrate a new world in union. One where, like your founding forefathers in America, you can first celebrate the Independance Day of the strong burning creative spirit that is within you. If set alight, it is one that will make your personal VISION of the future a REALITY."

Author's Bio: 

Craig Lock is a graduate from the University of Cape Town in South Africa... but he has learnt far more from the "school of hard knocks" and the University of Life... battered, bruised but never unbowed. He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") 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' 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!

Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia 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.

That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another fourteen manuscripts (on widely differing subjects) being published and promoted himself on the internet... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life.

Craig has taught at the local Tairiwhiti Polytechnic (English), as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was (as far as we know) the author of the first online creative writing course on the internet by a published writer. Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". 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.

He firmly believes in the motto: "Find what you love doing, then you will never have to do a day's work in your life."

Craig is certain he has found his niche in life... anyway, what other job would be suitable for him?

" A man without a dream is destined never to fulfill his or her full potential in life. Never give up on your dream... but take time to smell the flowers on your very individual journey. Be yourself and count your blessings, then try to make a difference in the world - however small. Try to shine your own little ray of sunshine to make the lives of others easier in some little way. You too can derive the greatest pleasure from treading the wildest uncertain path... and just being YOU."
