CD Brooks is a published author. He and his wife have been married 36 years. He's grampa to a 3- and a 1-year-old and spends part of his 19-hour days hanging out with them. He wastes too much time on this machine but it sort of goes along with having way too much time to think, thus providing him with material. Many people may recognize him from his letters with some who don't like him or his controversail style. He says, "Hey, it's my Irish nature, get over it."
