Brandon Wilson is the great, great, grandson of John-Lyle Wilson, the main character featured in The Half Beneath. Born in Maryland, he has spent the past five years learning and following some of the incredible Homeric tales buried in the land he loves. Wilson recently graduated from the University of Kentucky with a masters degree in history, and reclaimed 90-acres of John-Lyle Wilson’s former farm just north of Lexington. His literary focus surrounds what he calls “folk fiction”-stories about extraordinary Americans whose lives help illuminate the beauty and complexity in American culture.
