“Decent Women Wouldn’t Be Here” – Review of Her Own Vietnam

Andria Williams

I’m excited to share this insightful and beautifully written review of my novel – and the audiobook – by Andria Williams. She’s the editor of the Military Spouse Book Review, and author of the novel The Longest Night, which was one of my favorites of 2016.

My favorite line from her review, other than her praise of narrator Robin Miles, which I totally agree with, is this: “At the dawn of the Iraq war, which rumbles uneasily beneath the novel…”

Here’s the review.

I’m delighted to share this wonderful interview by the writer Martha Toll in the Washington Independent Review of Books.  It’s about the publishing journey from idea to rejection letters to book to audiobook – and what Toll calls “the novelist’s magic act.”

It’s official – HER OWN VIETNAM is an audiobook!

In March, I nervously reached out to my favorite audiobook narrator, Robin Miles, to ask if she’d be interested in narrating a novel called Her Own Vietnam.

Today, it’s a reality: Her Own Vietnam is an audiobook, narrated by Robin Miles and available on Audible. (And in a couple of days, on Amazon and iTunes as well).

Check it out! You can listen to the first 5 minutes for free by clicking the “Play Audio Sample” arrow. (If you’re truly weird, you can listen to it over and over, like I have.)  Continue reading

“When War Lasts a Lifetime” – Susan Storer Clark blogs about Her Own Vietnam

“I’m the kind of person who asks why things are the way they are,” says Susan Storer Clark.  A writer herself (author of the novel The Monk Woman’s Daughter), Susan is also the kind of reader that writers love: thoughtful and insightful.

I’m grateful she interviewed me about Her Own Vietnam, and wove in her own sharp observations about war and its legacy.  You can read it here.
