My first book Words of a Wolf - Poetry of a Veteran is available for purchase from my website. It's a combination of poetry and photography that I've used to shed some light on how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects me and how I cope with it. Words of a Wolf - Poetry of a Veteran is the first stage of a larger project with the following aims:
1) To raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in veterans.
2) To show how beneficial creative activities such as photography & poetry can be when used as coping mechanisms for PTSD.
3) To sign-post veterans to organisations that can help them and their families.
4) To put on a national exhibition of my work and raise more awareness of PTSD - using funds raised from the sale of this book.
25% of any profits from my work will go to 'Combat Stress'to provide resources for veterans coping with mental health illnesses as a result of their service.
An extract from the foreword by Derek Thompson:
'In his writing you'll find a rawness and honesty that we're not used to in society, as well as some uncomfortable truths. Stick with it though because the reward is a deeper understanding of the lives of ex-servicemen and women - about what can happen when the parades are over and the uniform comes off but the damage is still there. It will give you an insight into their relationships and family dynamics too, and maybe why so many of them fall apart.'
