Roger E. Craig-- The Last Aborigine

Former Michigan Senator Roger E. Craig - a four times published novelist is now publishing on Amazon Kindle.  Roger Craig is a trial lawyer. He writes his own appellate briefs to sharpen his skills as a fiction writer. Two-time Academic All-American in football, factory worker, musician, private detective, special counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during the Nixon-Ford transition and the head of the City of Detroit's law department, Craig brings a wealth of personal experience to his writing.
His novel “The Vetowich Wall” was nominated for the prestigious Frankfurt International Book Award. Recently in New Zealand, at the birthplace of bungee jumping, he dove 155 feet into a glacial river. His enthusiastic embrace of life is reflected in his writing.
Craig and his wife, Marlene, live in Naples, Florida,

The Last Aborigine is a lusty novel.  Mob violence and individual violent acts are its tapestry but it is a story of one lonely man fighting evil men. But in the end, the novel is a love story; an emotional spectrum coloring the lives of a once-burned pugilist and a life-scarred television reporter. Finally it is the story of the Australian character, forged by the likes of the outlaw, Ned Kelly and the indigenous peoples who spawned the last Aborigine.
If The Last Aborigine has a moral, it’s “never fall in love if you’re running from the Mob”.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
Readers will empathize with the tough but soft-hearted Danny Doyle.  Doyle double-crosses the mob boss in a risky gamble for his freedom.  He is forced to flee from Detroit to Australia to avoid death.  The reader will be with our hero every step of his journey, urging him onward but cringing at the Don Quixote risks he takes.  Will he win the game or will the killers find him?  How will the chance meeting with a beautiful TV anchor affect the probability of his success?    
Q: Why did you go indie?
I used a book publisher for my book editions, but I decided to publish independently when Amazon Kindle offered us writers the eBook route.  It was now possible to remove the publisher from between reader and writer.  I love the freedom of being able to take full control of my books, and to talk through blogs and forums directly to my readers.  I took a slightly different route than most indies by partnering with my friend Neville Deegan in a small eBook publishing company.  We offer our services and free advice to other indie writers.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
John Sandford, Michael Connelly, John Grisham,
