C.G. Buswell is a former army Combat Medical Technician and Staff Nurse.
Chris has cared for many military heroes and the traumas he witnessed during his nursing and emergency care of them in life and death led him to develop military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He writes about this too in his books. This form of mindfulness helps keep his demons at bay by inserting them into your Kindle!
Other postings in his career included the Field Surgical team in Belize, Akrotiri in Cyprus, and Haslar Hospital in Gosport.
Chris developed a love for writing during his 10-year service career and has had numerous articles published in journals like Professional Nurse, Nursing Standard, and the Nursing Times.
He wanted to include his middle initial in his novels after George Main, his Grandfather, who served with the 2nd Battalion Gordon Highlanders during World War Two. His military novels feature historical actions of the Gordons.
Buried in Grief is a tale about the loss of a child. Sadly, Chris drew deeply from his own bereavement to bring this emotional rollercoaster of a novel. It helped him explore his own feelings during his mourning, but the ending terrified most readers, thanks to his dark, twisted mind. He urges you not to read it. He has had therapy and now writes gentle romance stories, of a sort!
C.G. Buswell now writes full-time and lives in Boddam, Aberdeenshire with his Bravehound PTSD assistance dog Lyn, fantails white doves, pigeons, and a tortoise - o aye and a wife.
Damien Lewis, the military author and Patron of Bravehound said:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
