Since 2011, Craig has been both traditionally and indie published with a number of books in print in several different genres.

Patrick and co-author Murray Pura have recently released Far on the Ringing Plains, Book 1 in a nine-book series that will take in the whole sweep of men and women at war from WW II to the more current Desert Campaigns. He has also collaborated with other male Amish writers on an anthology of realistic Amish stories.

His most recent books are a creative non-fiction memoir titled Say Goodbye to the River: Stories from the Vanishing Wilderness, a ghost story, and book two in the WWII series with Pura. Patrick and his wife Judy live in Idaho. They have two daughters and five grandchildren.
