The Nam Legacy

The Nam Legacy

The Nam Legacy is an epic love story set during the 60’s and 70’s. When the Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane drove parents crazy, teenagers found sexual freedom and peace slogans covered placards. When the Vietnam War abducted the nation’s young men and sent them to fight in New Zealand’s most controversial campaign.

After eighteen months in Vietnam, New Zealand soldier Jack Coles thought killing others to stay alive would be the hardest thing he would ever have to live with. He was wrong. 

Although the nightmare of what he saw and did haunt him constantly, what tortures him the most, is what he has left behind.  

‘Not everyone who lost his life in Vietnam died there, not everyone who came home from Vietnam ever left there.’

The Nam Legacy is Jack’s story.

The Nam Legacy has won 1 award for best opening hook in a story, and hit the New Zealand Booksellers Top Ten Bestsellers list for Ficton. (paperback sales in NZ) I would like to start selling ebooks in a lead up to the 2nd book in the series coming out in November. 


This award-winning story swept into the New Zealand charts and sat in the Top Ten Bestsellers List for seven weeks.

Here's what Vietnam veterans and readers alike have to say:

“It is a powerful, gritty story with authentic characters.” 

“This book took me on an unexpected journey. I laughed and cried, felt angry and such sorrow. A definite must read.” 

“You write of the Vietnam War with the authority that must come from intense research or perhaps like Evelyn you were there too. The Vietnam sections and the dialogue in particular is spot-on, and convincing.” 

“The Nam Legacy is evocative, disturbing and beautifully written.”
