Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Before I began writing MASADA'S MARINE, I, like most Americans, never gave much thought to our American service men and women who serve and sacrifice their lives so that I can bask in the California sunshine, sip a $4.00 Carmel Frappuccino, and discuss the latest episode of The Black List or Dancing With The Stars.
When the subject of our military arose, I proudly stated my patriotic views and gave a blanket, but silent, thank you to all who lost their lives to keep me safe. My heart twisted in sadness every Veterans Day and Memorial Day. I consider myself an average American.
When I decided to write Masada's Marine, I imagined it as a nice story about a puppy named Masada, who grows up to become a service dog and changes the lives of two men.
 One man, who  began his life as a patriotic boy, graduates high school, starts his own family and becomes a gung-ho  Marine. The young man has everything to live for until he comes home from his first tour in Iraq with PTSD and loses it all, even his will to live.
Another man, who began life as the son of a drug addicted mother, learned how to fight a war of survival on the streets and exist inside a life of crime.  The pressures of young man's illicit career takes its toll and he ends up in prison defeated. He, too, has nothing to live for.
As I penned my story, the characters took on lives of their own. They demanded that this not be a nice story about a man and his dog. During the hours of research and interviews the characters became people, electric with emotions, and sometimes terrifying, like the firefight that promises only one victor.  As I learned more and about the invisible disease, PTSD, the story's heartbeat pulsed out of my control, like the disease itself.
 Masada and her littermates, the real heroes in this drama, matured into valuable service dogs. They changed not only the characters' lives, but my life as well. I am no longer the silent American. I hope Masada will change your life, too.
Every hour a veteran takes his own life.
DEDICATION
MASADA'S MARINE is dedicated to all our fallen warriors who fought the Invisible War
and lost.
 

About the Author

After the death of Judy Howard's husband in 2004, Judy became inspired to pursue writing and traveling.
         Both genres are covered in her first book, a memoir titled, COAST TO COAST WITH A CAT AND A GHOST, an inspirational and uplifting account of how to survive after the death of a loved one.
         Judy Howard's second book, GOING HOME WITH A CAT AND A GHOST, is a romantic mystery appealing to everyone in the second half of their life who have asked themselves, "What if?" Even in this work of fiction, Judy Howard delivers to the reader a message about how to rise above life's tragedies.
 
         Once again, in the author's third book, MASADA'S MARINE, the uplifting message of overcoming life's dramatic hurdles is delivered. Howard draws the reader into the life of a Marine Corps veteran who struggles with PTSD when he comes home from Iraq and, also, into the life a dog named Masada, who becomes a service dog for the wounded warrior.
         Judy Howard began a dog grooming career at the age of eleven and still works part time as a groomer. When Judy and her cat, Sportster, are not traveling in their Winnebago motorhome they reside in Sun City, California.
         Judy Howard is currently creating the second book in The Masada Series.
