I am the author of the critically acclaimed memoir No Man’s War: Irreverent Confessions of an Infantry Wife, which offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the tight-knit, sometimes insular community of military families and the sacrifices and hardships they endure. No Man’s War, published by Counterpoint Press, has been lauded in the pages of the Los Angeles Times, the New York Post, and numerous other publications, and I’ve discussed it and my experiences as a guest on NPR’s Fresh Air and on Fox and Friends. I earned my undergraduate degree from Indiana University and, in 1997, my master’s degree in social psychology and human relations while living in Europe. I teach creative writing, advise other authors, and am a frequent university lecturer. I live in Indiana with my husband, our three fiercely independent children, and our beloved pets.
