Description

Kelly Brooke Nicholls wrote A Reluctant Warrior to shine a light on events in Colombia and celebrate the brave everyday people there. It is based on events she witnessed firsthand and interviews with thousands of victims of paramilitaries, guerrillas and drug cartels. She also worked closely with the Special Agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Colombia office to help her ensure the technical accuracy of the novel.
Kelly has chosen to tell this story as a novel to build understanding, empathy and engagement and give voice to others - especially ethnic minorities and women. Kelly's husband in Afro-Colombian and the cover photo is actually her sister-in law - she is uniquely positioned to tell this story.
