Brett Allen is a husband, father, and former U.S. Army Cavalry Officer, who deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 with 3rd Squadron, 71st Cavalry Regiment of the 10th Mountain Division, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. On deployment, Brett served as his Squadron’s air operations planner, lead bootleg movie scout, and was the linchpin in Headquarters coffee production. His experiences, good, bad, and odd, made him uniquely qualified to pen his debut novel, Kilroy Was Here, a tongue-in-cheek look at American operations in Afghanistan. Brett talked to Mistress Carrie about his upbringing, his time in the military, his writing process, Kilroy Was Here, and more.
