My next book

Upcoming gay soldiers book, SOLDIERS FIRST


Preview my gay soldiers book

The tumultuous story of two gay soldiers, who forge a lifelong friendship before, during, and after Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Brett and Drake battle for love and freedom to survive three wars and one exhausting policy.

The two adopt wildly different strategies to outmaneuver the silent adversary, yet each rises deftly toward Lt. Colonel,* inside the great American war machine rumbling through adventures in the Middle East.

Two harrowing love stories — at war.

* (Avoiding spoilers.)

"Tackles the hardest question of all: why?

Come away from Cullen's unflinching account with a deeper understanding of what drove these boys to kill."
