Ben was born and raised in Hertfordshire, England in 1986 and remained there until he was 16 when the family moved down to the south of England.
He learnt to love books at an early age thanks to the efforts of his Mother and Grandmother. By 11 he was reading novels by one of his favourite authors, Dean Koontz, which came about when his Mother gave him a small collection of novels which included Phantoms, Watchers and his early favourite book, The Door to December.
It was through reading these novels that his love for writing would grow. During school, he would spend time writing notes and book ideas but would not fully realise his potential for another 15 years.
In 2011 he came across Smashwords, which gave him the opportunity to release his short stories to the world. First came Mouse and Cat, followed by a further 8 stories.
In 2016 he wrote and published his first novel on Amazon, sharing his love for horror and the Victorian way of life. From the deep abyss of dark thoughts came a novel of revenge, lost love and regrets.
