It’s widely believed that everybody has a book in them, a story worth telling. Now after years of writing about my past and improving my skill I’ve started to write a fictional novel rather than my autobiography.
I believe a truthful, no-holds barred account would be a selfish and egotistical piece but a novel loosely based on my experiences would be more entertaining. Producing a good story is more important to me than simply writing about my own military life as it was.

I would appreciate any reviews of my efforts because only then will I know if I am on track.
