Writer Statement

It was my dream to become an Infantry Soldier and follow in my ancestor's footsteps. Unfortunately, that would be short-lived as I would, have inherent PTSD after a fatal military accident. I lost my confidence, my self-a-stream. I lost the ability to hold a relationship. I would be angry and sad, all at the same time. I would experience intrusive dreams and memories. I would become an alcoholic and try to drink myself to death. Today, forty years on, I started to get a clear head and gave up drinking. Now, my aim is to bring my true story to the WORLD, in the hope I might be able to educate people, on how PTSD affects, not only the sufferer but entire families. Fields of Green is a provocative story of addiction, PTSD, Military bureaucracy and overcoming tragedy. This is my true story.
