From the Author:

I'm no stranger to being part of a military family. My father was a WWII Army veteran who suffered from PTSD and was never treated. Most men weren't back then. My brother was a Marine, and my sister served in the Navy for eight years. Although my siblings didn't serve in combat, I had first-hand understanding of being a kid at home waiting for my brother or sister to be called to go to war. There has been a lot of press about the parents, spouses, and children of soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, but not much is said about the siblings. That is one of the reasons I wrote Heaven is for Heroes.
The other reason is that I love romance, and nothing pulls at the heartstrings like first love. In Heaven is for Heroes, seventeen year-old Jordie Dunn must face the loss of her brother when he's killed in the war in Iraq. But Jordie doesn't believe the military report that his best friend and fellow Marine, Alex Cooper, is at fault. In her quest to find the truth and help Alex (the guy she's had a crush on since the ninth grade) in his recovery, Jordie discovers that the truth isn't the only thing she wants.
Because the focus of the story is the tenuous romance with the underlying plot of a family's search for peace in time of war, HIFH will appeal to adult readers as well as older young adults. With entertaining secondary characters and a challenging mother-daughter relationship, the story deals with real life issues with both unwavering comprehension and uplifting humor.
 Set in a fictitious Connecticut laketown, the story has the feel of hometown USA and is relatable to anyone questioning the value of war and the cost to the families of lost and wounded soldiers. Heaven Is For Heroes takes you through one family's loss, and the recovery of a soldier dealing with both the emotional and physical ravages of war.
I hope you enjoy the book!

From the Back Cover:

            Smart and athletic seventeen year-old Jordie Dunn has a bright future planned, but when tragedy turns her life upside down, she begins to question not only her future, but the facts surrounding her brother's death in Iraq. The military's account that his best friend and fellow Marine, Alex Cooper, is at fault, is a notion she refuses to believe. Alex was the careful one--the shy, protective, computer geek she's had a crush on since the ninth grade, and she knows better than anyone that her troubled brother had a dark and reckless side--a secret she's kept for far too long.
            With no memory of the incident that killed his best friend, nineteen year-old Alex Cooper returns home, shattered and facing a difficult recovery. Determined to go it alone, he pushes Jordie away. No longer the freckle-faced tom-boy who followed him and Levi around as a kid, she has become a beautiful and stubborn young woman who believes in him far more than he deserves.
            While Jordie's unique approach to rehab pushes Alex to extremes, the two discover that their childhood friendship has grown into more. The attraction has Jordie's head spinning and her heart soaring, but Alex struggles to deal with his guilt, his loss, and the nightmares that continue to haunt him. Even though Jordie is determined to help him heal, and even more determined to find the truth, what she doesn't expect, is to find love.
