Area Resident Publishes New Historical Novel

How do you fight the demons of your past? How do you face the ones you left behind to fight on opposing sides? Take the journey, as one man tries to cope with his past and rediscover himself in order to survive.

Pamela Peters, a college instructor and local photographer has released her first novel, “The War Within”. The novel is the first of a three part series focusing on the psychological challenges soldiers can face when they try to adapt to life after fighting in a war.

Peters, a graduate of Pittsburg State University, is an instructor of Mass Communication at Lane College in Jackson, Tennessee and a co-owner, lead photographer, and lecturer of Wild Radiance Photography in Richmond, KS. She has been recognized at the state and national levels as a collegiate broadcaster where she has combined her love of the visual arts with her knowledge of history. Her novel was created out of her experience interviewing war veterans for her collegiate documentary, “The USS Dunlap: Recollections of Those Who Served”.

Set at the end of the American Civil War, “The War Within” follows Daniel Reed as he makes his way across the country as he struggles with rediscovering his life. He left the south to fight for the north, he watches helplessly as his best friend dies in his arms, and struggles to survive a horrific night on a battlefield only to find himself searching for meaning to his life when the fighting is over. Daniel must learn to trust his enemy in order to help him reunite with his family. In order to do that he must first face his inner most fears.
