FICTION VS. NON-FICTION

War in Iraq at sunrise

For my upcoming suspense book, MELTDOWN, I did hours of research on military missions in the Middle East. In addition to watching documentaries, I read several fiction and non-fiction books on the subject. I was astounded to learn from two authors, both having served in Iraq or Afghanistan, they chose to write about their war experience as a fictional piece instead of as non-fiction. Both men stated by doing so they had the ability to be more honest in their writing.
Throughout my book, there are glimpses of two men’s war experience. Not surprising, they were profoundly impacted by their involvement, but they deal with the emotional trauma of war in very different ways.  MELTDOWN is available on Amazon.
