Mary Craig (born 1928) is a journalist and a British writer. She lives in Hampshire, England.

A prolific author, she has written 14 books since 1978, including a trilogy on Tibet, biographies of personalities, including John Paul II, Lech Walesa and Frank Pakenham. She also wrote autobiographical works that addressed the death of Frank, her husband who died of cancer, and the story of their son suffering from Hurler syndrome. On the website of her most recent book says, "Many of her books share a common theme of the examination of spirituality in the post war world."

She is the author of ''Kundun'', the first biography of the 14th Dalai Lama to contextualize his story with that of his family members.

To write her book about the Chinese occupation of Tibet (''Tears of Blood'' (1992)), she visited several times Dharamsala, home of the 14th Dalai Lama and of the Central Tibetan Administration, where she forges bonds of lasting friendships. In 1993, she made numerous visits to Dharamsala to interview members of the family of the Dalai Lama to write ''Kundun'', regretting she could not meet the mother of the Dalai Lama, Dekyi Tsering (Amala), disappeared before her visit in North India.
