“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. ┬áIt’s about the publishing journey from idea to rejection letters to book to audiobook – and what Toll calls “the novelist’s magic act.”
