The Author

Vee Walker is a novelist and short story author based on the Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands.

The discovery of a long-forgotten family mystery led her to spend almost a decade researching and writing Major Tom’s War, which was a prizewinner at the inaugural Military History Fiction Awards 2019. A fictionalised family memoir/saga, it is an account of her maternal grandparents’ unlikely courtship during the Great War, 1914 – 1918 and a parallel story of the mayor of an occupied French town on the border with Belgium. Much of the book is set in northern France and a French translation of Major Tom’s War is underway. You can buy Major Tom’s War direct from its independent publisher Kashi House here: hardback, paperback or as an ebook.
