I write novels. Thrillers. Stories to entertain you. Battle Scars is different. First, it’s a novella. You’ll read it in two or three hours. Second, it’s not a thriller, although you won’t be able to put it down. And third, there’s a message which I hope transcends this small book. If you’ve served our great nation in uniform, this book was written for you. And if haven’t served yourself, but you love your country, and understand the sacrifices made by our war fighters, then you should read it, too. In fact, I hope the whole world reads this little book, because it’s a story that needs to be told. Give me a couple hours of your time.
Heroism, brotherhood, sacrifice, love, guilt, PTSD, courage, redemption, and hope. It’s all inside this little story. Please read it.

Military Writers Society of America – Historical Fiction
It began as a simple novella about a soldier struggling with PTSD, but over the weeks and months I’ve worked on it, it’s come to mean a lot to me … and to a lot of other people, too.
I’m proud and humbled to have so many veterans, at every level of military service, tell me how much Battle Scars meant to them, and how they think about it weeks and months after they read it. That means a lot to me, and I hope it means something to you as well.
The Kindle version of Battle Scars is only $1.99, and it’s available now. You can get a paperback copy for only $6.99. Both are available here.
I hope it means as much to you as it means to me…and to so many others.
A long time ago, I put together a lame little one-page web site because, you know, we were supposed to have a web site (though I admit I wasn’t really sure why.) Now, at long last, I’ve got a web site that I can actually use … and I plan to.
If you haven’t already added your name to the e-mail list, please do. There’s some amazing stuff coming up soon, and I want everybody to know about it. I promise, I won’t send any junk mail to your inbox, and I’ll only bother you when there’s really something worth talking about. But if you like the stories I’ve told so far … you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter … and please, let me know what you think of the new site!
