Benedict hails from a small town in Northern Ireland called Banbridge, but has been living and working in Scotland since moving there at the age of eighteen. Tragically, that was quite a while ago.

He has been writing for most of his life, and have been reading for pretty much all of it (with help from mum and dad at the beginning). His life changed when a substitute primary school teacher read his class part of The Hobbit and he asked him for a lend of the book – he fell in love with the fantasy genre and never looked back.
