Ben's been publishing epic and dark fantasy books since 2010, starting with The Written, book one of Norse-influenced Emaneska Series. The series was completed in 2013 with the release of Dead Stars Part Two. While creating a graphic novel of The Written with Michael Shipley, he started a new set of books, this time western fantasy. The Scarlet Star Trilogy follows Tonmerion, a high-born orphan sent to the frontier of the known world: Wyoming. His next project, The award-winning standalone The Heart of stone, tells the story of the immortal golem Task, and more recently his newest series, The Chasing Graves Trilogy, explores a dark fantasy world where ghosts are bound as slaves for the rich.
