Front-Line Fight: Army Veteran Turns to Writing to Escape PTSD, Surgery Pain & Mental Trauma

While Kelly Renée was trained to kill, her computer’s keyboard has ultimately become her strongest weapon against military life’s realities. After being left on bed rest with PTSD, the prospect of further painful surgery and with severely-limited movement, Renée has turned to writing in order to experience true escapism and freedom. With her latest erotic short story series garnering a rapid base of fans, the fight to literary success has been long worth the battle.


San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2013 -- As an Army veteran, many would expect Kelly Renée to be a fit and healthy woman with a wealth of positive stories to tell. However, following serious injury and delayed recovery, Renée has been forced to face a life of both mental and physical pain. While each day presents new challenges and a unique set of struggles, Renée’s limitless tenacity has seen her develop a form of escapism nobody can take away – writing.

In fact, since going on bed rest Renée has launched a hugely-successful literary career and developed a solid fan base across the country. With a knack for erotic fiction, ‘On My Radar’, her latest release, is quickly becoming a staple of its booming genre.


Vampires have come so far but, like everyone else, they have their weaknesses. In this story Jess, an adapted human, has found herself becoming a stalker to one of the sexy local vampires, Tremlin. Tremlin never takes her attention off of Jess, constantly protecting and watching her without fully letting it become obvious.

The two start getting closer and more involved with each other. On one intense day, flames burn between them as they take a ride with death. Sex is simply the only thing that will save them both.

They test their luck while putting both their lives on the line. How far are they both willing to go to save each other?

As the author explains, her unique narrative is resonating very well with a broad readership.

The author admits that writing transports her into a world free from pain, anxiety and an uncertain future.

“Transitioning from a soldier to a civilian has been really hard and I find I am not able to do the things I once could. Inside, I feel that I am not the person I once was; something which has a devastating effect on my quality of life. However, I lose track of all of this when writing and I don’t black out, have PTSD episodes or insecurities. It really does bring tangible benefits,” says Renée.

Continuing, “My Army background has helped me reach a lot of fans, even though most don’t know about my specific situation. Through their support we have made ‘On My Radar’ a huge success and I have about fifteen other books in the works. I am working diligently to develop my writing future, as it is where I want to be – happy, healthy and living life again.”
