"Only the most ingenious author could meld together into a single plot the Grand Tetons of Wyoming and the forbidding territories of Afghanistan, but that's what Carol Craig does in this inspiring page-turner of a novel. The story is as suspenseful as it is heartwarming, and the characters, both human and canine, are as compelling as they are unforgettable!" 

Evan Howard, Author of the Galilean Secret 

"Trouble begins in the opening paragraph of C. L, Craig's A Walk in the Dark. A missing grandmother, a forgotten Afghani dog, and threats against the new veterinarian. If not for a veteran, back from a tour in Afghanistan, Tracy Barnhardt might not survive the continued disasters. This is a story that keeps us turning pages."

New York Times Bestselling Author, Jane Kirkpatrick

A Walk in the Dark, C.L, Craig's newest romantic suspense unfolds in the shadow of the majestic Teton Range and continues the story of a ranch dedicated to helping struggling veterans. The town's veterinarian is determined to rehab her life despite mounting evidence she's purchased property with a dark and dangerous history. A highly recommended read."
Candace Calvert, Best Inspirational Romance Author of The Crisis Team Series, The Mercy Hospital Series and The Grace Medical Series

    The Vast In Between

A child goes missing during the storm of the century in Shardsburg, Alabama. Thirty years later, a woman shows up on Cookie Haine's doorstep with a faded newspaper clipping about the incident with the cryptic words, tell no one. What happened to the child and what does it have to do with Cookie? In this story of love and loss, one woman must uncover the truth in her quest for acceptance and forgiveness.


C.L. Craig invites us to a story of family fraught with mystery but with characters so endearing you’ll look for their Christmas letter to catch you up on how they’re doing. A finely plotted story from the South and from the heart with surprises to the very end.

Jane Kirkpatrick, Award-winning author of The Healing of Natalie Curtis

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, a glimpse into a pivotal time in American history--through the eyes of a young woman unraveling the mystery surrounding her birth. The author does a masterful job of scene setting, the imagery so compelling that more than once I found myself reading phrases aloud. The characters are well drawn, dialogue natural, and the conflicts are believable and engaging. The mystery unfolds gradually, like a building storm, allowing the reader to explore its emotional impact on the characters. There are unexpected twists, poignant revelations, and a satisfying conclusion. I recommend The Vast In Between to those who enjoy family drama, Southern fiction, and a warm, humor-infused and wholesome read.

About us

My motto is to do what you love while striving to help others, and to make the world a better place in the process. If we each did this, it would have a ripple effect. Only then can we hope to see the kind of world we all want, one that is more humane, where kindness and integrity matter, one of diversity and inclusiveness. And finally, one that cares for the planet and all its plants and animals.
