My writing saga began early in the 21st century and was meant to be a memoir of my Army days. But when I got to the part where I faced a tiger, the character of the beast began to take over until I was forced to make the book a novel. Once I started writing about the exploits of Dillon and his companion the tiger I felt compelled to write a sequel; Dillon’s War: Revenge of the Weretiger. Now what started as a psychological drama morphed into a phantasy horror tale where Dillon’s psyche was blended with the tiger. All the while, the books told the actual history of the Vietnam War. The events were superimposed on two imaginary characters – Dillon and the tiger.
