Craig, a former nurse turned librarian, has been writing for 13 years and has recently chronicled his experiences of living with depression and anxiety in the international best-seller, Down Days. Topping the Amazon charts in the UK and US at the start of Covid, the book has since been a finalist for the Independent Author Network’s Book of the Year Awards and read the world over.

His latest novel, Make Believe, is the first book in a new series called The Hexford Witches, based entirely in the Yorkshire Dales.

Craig’s next project is a literary Gothic series based in contemporary Yorkshire. The first book will highlight the ghosts of the area’s industrial past and the families who were left broken by the closure of the local mines.

While one man grieves for the loss of his wife and is hunted by recurring visions of a large black dog hunting him, his granddaughter is also preyed upon by the boys and men of an honourless society.
