Elaine Viets

Welcome, Simon. I'm a big fan of your work and look forward to reading your exploration of survivor guilt. The stats on returning veterans are sad and horrible.


Can't wait to crack my copy - I had no idea about the mechanism of survivor guilt either. I thought it would be - you know - guilt. As in feeling guilty. It sounds exhausting and scary.

Simon Wood

Thanks ladies.

A friend of mine who's a vet posted a stat a few months ago saying that 3times as many vets have died by their own hand since returning home than died combat.

Now I know what I'll be pre-ordering this weekend. We have soldiers in the family and returning home is not always as easy as we think and hope it might be. Sounds like a good story, can't wait to read.

Simon Wood

Hope you like it, Sally.

Mary S.

That's one horrible statistic for vets. Awful. And a very tough subject to write about, I'm sure. Looking forward to reading this one.

Thanks for being with us today, Simon!
