A Valiant Heart

The Prequel to A Shattered Mind  

Available from



One man, two battles. One against circumstances, and one with his mind.

A routine deployment to Afghanistan. One death, and one double leg amputation, hit Mike and his platoon hard. Facing increasing hostilities, he begins to wonder if he’ll ever make it home.

Then his wife suffers a miscarriage.

With one final mission remaining, Mike’s thoughts and moods swing from highs to lows, alternating between his life in a combat zone to his family at home.

A veteran of long service and battle-hardened, Mike begins to doubt himself and his circumstances. His mental anguish lays the foundations for the events in ‘A Shattered Mind’ where Mike stands to lose everything he holds dear.
