About the Author
In May 1980 he left college and entered the employment market. During one of his many visits to the Job Centre, a job card caught his eye: 'Wanted: trainee retail managers'. In October 1980, he left Huddersfield to ply his trade in London, and returned three and a half years later a wiser and more mature young man. A brief period of letting his hair down followed, catching up on lost time and lost youth. During On his return he met the love of his life and future wife, Melanie. His career in retail spanned six and a half years with five different companies but to realise his dream he would have to go it alone.
His 'Big Break' came when he was asked to invest in a fledgling printing business. Against all professional advice he jumped at the chance, re-mortgaged his house and bought an equal stake. After thirteen years of blood, sweat, and holding back the tears, he ended up owning a modestly successful little business. The time was right to begin his journey to a dream.
Craig's writing career began in 2004 when he was asked to pen a weekly column for an online magazine. Over the last few years he has written a number of articles for the Trinity Mirror Group and online publications such as CNN, My Destination, and Insiders Abroad.
