M.J. Brett’s family fiction novel, The Voices Know My Name (ISBN: 978-0-9748869-9-2, softcover, 260 pages, ages 12 and up), was released July 16, 2015 by Blue Harmony Press. This is her tenth novel.
A young soldier with PTSD tries to kill himself, but is stopped by a total stranger, a civilian. After the event, he remembers nothing about it. The rescuer has no intention of getting involved, but she soon learns that he is not the only one who hears voices or can't cope with bad memories. Together, they search through crisis after crisis for a way to find "normal," or at least a "new normal."
After 21 years teaching on military bases in Europe, Margaret Brettschneider (a.k.a. M.J. Brett) has begun writing stories she feels need to be told, stories of ordinary people in extraordinary situations. It's not what happens to you, she feels, it's how you respond to the trauma and challenge of living.
