His horse, his stud, and his home as well;

That a rich young fool should be cast away,
Though what he does with his own, in fine,

As our Author of the Day, Brannan reveals how James Bond inspired his work, talks about his years in the Army and gives us a sneak peek in what he is working on right now.
