A new “work/book” Craig is currently writing, as the book “writes itself”... I don’t know how the story will end, but I do know how it all began... * “The characters seem to represent the virtues and the resilience of the ‘little’ people, a story (or stories) to which we can all relate. In essence it’s about hope and faith: a tale (and tales) of the unquenchable spirit of tenacity in battling on, no matter what are our circumstances. And then eventually finding a way, a pathway to overcome personal adversity ... and to ultimately succeed in glorious triumph.” “A story (and stories) to bring hope to the human soul.” When (and where) love endures, hope inevitably follows” - the writer CONTENTS PART ONE: STIRLING AYRTON SENNA: THE LEGEND * Intermission Rugby World Cup 1995 (from ‘Over the Rainbow’ 1999) “The Olympic Effort” (The Olympic Games from ‘Over the Rainbow’ 1999) * * PART TWO: THE PRIZE PROLOGUE: THE SOUTH AFRICAN DREAM LONG WALK TO FREEDOM AND PEACE: THE “BRIDGE-BUILDER, THE RECONCILIATOR CHAPTER ONE A CALL TO PEACE CHAPTER TWO: : THE PEACEMAKER CHAPTER THREE: “FROM SEEDS OF HATE TO THE BONDS OF LOVE” CHAPTER FOUR THE WRITER CHAPTER APPENDIX ONE: FROM SEEDS OF HATE TO THE BONDS OF LOVE APPENDIX TWO: DAG HAMMARSKJOLD’S LIFE AND SPIRIT APPENDIX THREE: Arab Spring likely pick for peace prize * "I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." - Phil 3:14 (New King James version) PART ONE STIRLING THE NEW BOOK ‘STIRLING’ * by craig lock stirling and a young unknown author of the future “The characters seem to represent the virtues and the resilience of the ‘little’ people, a story (or stories) to which we can all relate.

So ENJOY...

Craig has had five books published on various subjects with another 12 manuscripts being published and marketed on the Internet. The year 2000 * Updated in August 2011 "I write because I simply HAVE to" "Writers help readers to see the world differently." "I write because something inside myself, inner and unconscious forces me to." That is the first compulsion. The second is one of ethical and moral duty." "I write about and believe in the resilience of humanity- I truly believe in the triumph of the human spirit." "I really value words and the power of them to communicate effectively; so in my various stories try to illustrate and then let readers draw their own conclusions about a certain scenario, as well as the characters searching for their own values in an increasingly complex social and political landscape. However, I do feel an obligation to give a complete picture of the situation, which is often not a clear-cut 'black or white' issue (as in South Africa). I never want to proscribe how people should think and feel my only duty as a writer is to be totally honest." - craig "I love to write about, share stories of the resilience and courage of ordinary (what's that?) people."
