A beautiful girl is missing and may not want to be found,
A soldier on his last and most important mission,
A vow made to a dying friend. 

In 1996, Northern Ireland is one of the most dangerous places in the world.
The government calls it a state of unrest, the people living there call it the time of "The Troubles".

Gerald "Hardly" McDougall is a forgotten man. He's abused, bullied, and left behind. The only escape left is to join the British Army. At first, he's a reluctant soldier. Then, everything changes when tensions in Northern Ireland escalate and the Army need a man with a particular set of characteristics. Hardly's assignment takes him into the heart of the troubles where he lives in the same houses as the IRA soldiers he's fighting against.

"My Name Is Hardly"takes the reader on a spellbinding twenty year journey through Hardly's life-from the beginning, when he leaves Scotland and joins the Army, to the tragic final days when he embarks on a search to find the only woman who can answer all of his questions.

Follow-up to the #1 Amazon Bestseller, "My Temporary Life"-easily enjoyed as a standalone novel.
