A former New Hampshire correctional officer is drawing on some of his real life experiences in his debut novel.
David Moloney, of Lowell, worked in a New Hampshire jail for years — an environment he describes as "complete stress every day." His recent book, titled "Barker House," follows some fictional correctional officers in a fictional jail with some real messages about the criminal justice system.
Moloney joined WBUR's Morning Edition to talk about it.
