Learn about the breadth of Craig's interests by reading about his writing:
. . . a Sierra Club program designed to expose city kids to nature . . .
. . . the gifts these people were giving us would help my family grow . . . because of the love with which they were given . . .
. . . Each hike is an adventure for the kids, many of whom have never been surrounded by trees before . . .
(Information on Inner City Outings on Massachusetts Sierra Club website)
. . . In a truly over-the-top stretch, Mr. Lloyd went so far as to virtually accuse me, a USMC veteran and Legionnaire, of being an Islamic terrorist simply by vitue of being a proud cardcarrying member of the ACLU . . .
. . . The military is not, and should not be, a world apart from the rest of the nation . . .
. . . Ragtag soldiers bloodied and almost destroyed the best the world's leading military power could throw at them . . .
. . . It both saddens and scares me that an organization . . . would endorse such hateful, anti-homosexual, gay-bashing propaganda . . .

Novel - Full Dressout
From the Massachusetts Sierran review, Spring, 2002
". . . once started, I found it hard to put down-- and then cheated by going directly to the end."
From the Cambridge Chronicle review, May 21, 2002
"In short, Kelley has written a good book, one which pulsates with action. It is a book which makes you think, what if. In the case of "Full Dressout," you can tell yourself it is only a book, but one worth reading. You never know."
(Book description on Xlibris.com website)
Craig combines his sense of humor, his love of writing, and his political concerns in poetry:
The Waves were getting Bigger
At the North end of Cambridge, near the Arlington sign
. . . Other than their names on a wall, there seems to be nothing else to remember these original patriots . . .
Over two hundred years ago
. . . When I think back to the race that fall
. . . The issues that once seemed so clear
. . . Once done with the Alewife, the Council rushed on
Listen North Cambridge to my tale of woe
. . . my foreign policy expertise is exactly what our nation wants in someone who would be just a heartbeat from the Presidency.
