Military Books

The voices of women veterans are not well-represented generally.  While I prefer to do it in other kinds of fiction, here are some historical stories about the experience, and even some poetry.  The pages to the first three are still coming.


Dog tags against a brown background
This is a collection of stories and poems reflecting my military experience.  There are poems written during Desert Storm.
A woman walking in the distance, forest surrounding her.
Coming home from war for the soldier is a strange experience.  The world no longer matches up.
Cover for First Night
Arriving the first time in-country is a profound experience for every soldier.  We’re leaping into it blind and we don’t know what we’re going to get.
Soldier, Storyteller: A Woman Soldier Goes to War
When I came back from Desert Storm, everyone asked me “What was it like?” It took 25 years to figure out how to answer it.
Cover for Red, White & True
I was just starting to understand that I needed to put more of my experience into these. This was painful story because it was about a friendship that died during Desert Storm.
Washington Monument at sunset
I wrote this a year after the jet crashed into the Pentagon. I’m still amazed I could write about it then, because I don’t think I could do it now.
