H. Paul Honsinger is a retired attorney. Born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana, he is a graduate of Lake Charles High School, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and Louisiana State University Law School in Baton Rouge. Honsinger currently lives in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, with his beloved wife, Kathleen, and stepson, Chris, as well as two highly eccentric cats. His hobbies include astronomy, military history, and the history of the Apollo program. He also devotes time to cheering on his daughter, Sarah, who is a music major at a California university. Brothers in Valor is the third novel in his Man of War series, which also includes To Honor You Call Us and For Honor We Stand. The Man of War series is the beginning of what Honsinger hopes to be a long series of novels detailing the adventures of Max Robichaux and Ibrahim Sahin in the Union Space Navy.
