Want to know what it’s really like to come home from war?
THE LONG WAY HOME (TLWH) takes us through your re-adjustment to life at home while still serving in the military. How has putting your experiences down on paper helped you…and others in a similar situation?
I think it’s really important that we as leaders share our stories. I mean, I’m a leader by virtue of my rank so when a young soldier is struggling and they can see that someone else has gone through it too, it’s really helpful. I know there is one awesome lady who I look up to very much who has gone through her own goo. The fact that she was willing to talk through her stuff with me and share her story with me helped me a lot.
Tell us about your favourite fan letter/interaction about TLWH
Over the course of writing these posts, I’ve gotten a lot of notes from people who are just amazed at what I was going through. I put on a smile and figured out how to keep going. That’s really it, you know? But the best part was talking with a former soldier who was like, yeah, I could totally relate to this. It matters that we share our stories, you know?
What did your family, your girls, think of the books? Have they read them?
I did keep copies for my kids to read when they get older. They’re too little right now and they don’t remember a lot of this stuff but when they’re older and they’re curious, they’ll have it, you know? Right now, they just think it’s cool that mommy is a writer.
What’s next for you in 2013?
Laura & Trent’s book, followed by Reza & Ben. Then after that, I have no idea:)
Fishing with hubby
Favourite snack/drink when writing?
Chocolate or fruits?
Am I allowed to say chocolate covered fruit?
eBooks or paperbacks?
I read eBooks because they’re easier to read when I’m working out but if a book’s a keeper? I buy the paperback.
If you could meet anyone from history, living or dead, who would it it be and why?
Oh wow. Probably the Virgin Mary. I want to hear what it was like raising Jesus. Was He a good kid? Did He make Her want to pull her hair out sometimes. I’m really curious about that, lol!
