And we're off!

Updated: Jul 7

I had to make a decision whether to publish the book - three years of work, so much effort - and I believe I have an important story to tell. In a way, the decision was easy. The Army decided to make another attack on my character. Hugely disproportionate response from the military leadership. Army legal involved before I even got a chance to tell my side of the story, with a cursory 'if you don't like it, make a complaint'. Of course, those legal reps know that the service complaints' system is ineffective.


After a brief conversation with my military mentors, I know that my values can no longer turn a blind eye to what I have seen. I won't make a complaint. Time to resign and tell my story. So.. I am delighted to announce I have signed a publishing deal - due publishing in June 2020. Watch this space.
