Behind the Story

Why This Story

I’ll be honest. This story did start out as an inkling idea for a fanfiction. I won’t say which. However, as I started research in Vietnam and sketching out ideas I decided it would be much more appropriate as an original novel.

The most distinct part of the research process so far is the fact that the main character is a Black Vietnam War veteran. The bottom line is that I’ve been able to find only one collective memoir of Black soldiers from the Vietnam war. I think, while this story is much more in the lines of fantasy, there is something to be said about bringing back lost stories.
