Yancy Caruthers is an Iraq war veteran, registered nurse, retired Army Reserve officer, and former U.S. diplomat. He is the author of Northwest of Eden, a memoir of his second deployment as the second-in-command of an Army emergency room in the heart of Anbar province. He lives with his family in southwest Missouri.
In addition to an appearance in Soldier of Fortune magazine, he’s also written for Yahoo! News and is the recipient of a Yahoo! Spotlight Award. Other works appear in Warrior Heart Magazine, Microhorror, Ascent Aspirations, and Every Day Fiction, and somewhere out there are some medical brochures he ghost-wrote, describing diseases you never want to get.
Yancy is currently working on “Medic!,” a series of true stories about combat medics in each of the living wars. They will be released separately as e-books and eventually combined under one cover, assuming the author doesn’t get distracted.
Yancy is available for interviews or guest blogging.
