Christopher W. Morin is the author of three historical fiction novels (A Tale of Life & War), (The Rebel’s Wrath), (Rogue Plunder), a fictional short story (The Besieged), a memoir about the family dogs (Three Labs a Lifetime) and an additional memoir about the family cats (Three Fab Felines).
A TALE OF LIFE & WAR is a work of historical fiction centering on the experiences of a downed WWII fighter pilot in occupied France just prior to D-Day. The story is told by the pilot to a college student much later in life. The tale, as the title suggests, not only relates the pilot’s combat experiences, but also important and interesting events in his civilian life both before and after the war.
A Tale of Life & War takes a fictional story and wraps it around real historical events and places. It takes on a local flavor as well as several parts of the story, both factual and fictional, directly relate to places in Maine and the state’s involvement in the war.
A Tale of Life & War is Christopher Morin’s first novel. It combines his passion of storytelling with his interest in American military history from both an international and a local perspective. MORE>>
