Benjamin was born in Rockford, Illinois. He is a father, a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, an author, a musician, a speaker, a son of God, a lover of all things Chicago sports, a pizza consumption virtuoso, an intellectual, and a self-proclaimed comedian (yet to be confirmed). All of these things, simple as they may be, make up the person that he has grown to be.
He graduated from Belmont University in Nashville with a degree in Commercial Music. After touring the world as a professional musician, Benjamin decided it was time to focus on on composing music for film/tv and truly diving into writing.
The Keeper of Edelyndia is Benjamin's first novel, but he now has three (almost five) completed and is looking forward to releasing those soon as well. In addition to being a novelist, he has a handful of non-fiction books in the works and contributes to youth ministry blogs, as well as his own.
