After the Storm Publishing Presents
"Soldier With a Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously"
by Author Linda Diane Wattley
Author Linda Diane Wattley’s new release, Soldier With a Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously is a must read that will start the conversation of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder needed in our communities. Early childhood to adulthood and the life experiences in between, including and in particularly military service, can cause someone to suffer from PTSD and be what Author Wattley calls, “the love killer,” in many families. Acknowledging it, addressing it and finding out what to do about it is a process and it is not for the weak at heart. Learning to trust yourself enough to build from the inside out is a must to get started. Family and friend support along with professional help makes all the difference. Surrounded by love and patience, all of these things will give our loved ones what they need to journey through PTSD and learn to live normal lives.

Soldier with a Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously will grant permission to start talking about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in ways necessary for our families, our communities and our government. Author Wattley intimately shares her life and experiences with PTSD, of her son and the process it has taken to delve into the effects it has, as well as her stance on the matter. Ultimately, love wins simply because it is the beginning of care, support and the patience needed at a time such as this.

Author Linda Diane Wattley is a published writer who began her first work of art with poetry.  The poem, “I Wish” appeared in the Poetry Gem of the American Poets Society.  For over twelve years she had her own religious/philosophical column in the Frost Illustrated Newspaper titled “The Best Will Show Themselves.”
Author Wattley has appeared as a contributed writer for the online magazines including:  Faith Writers, The Wright Side of Me Productions, The Blessed Room and Cheers where she shared Inspirational and thought provoking messages to readers.  She is also a contributing of anthologies:  The Triumph of My Soul edited by Elissa Gabrielle and This Far by Faith with Vanessa Miller as editor.

Today, God has awakened her to a new and extremely important message to share with the world.  We must become more conscious of PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; she is presenting her newest work:  Soldier with a Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously.  This work reveals the reality of the impact this disorder has on our veterans and civilian people’s lives.
It takes you deep within the soul of the inner dynamics of this disorder.  Stress and Trauma is guiding us farther away from love; truth and understanding will guide us to self-love and love for our fellowman.

When Author Wattley is not writing, she enjoys her family; Mother Jacqueline M. Bushner, sons:  Robert D. Wattley III, Marcus, daughter-in-law Katie and her granddaughters Jaelynn and Myla.
