Ben is the author of two crime and mystery series. The David Good private investigator stories are set in 1980s London, featuring a PI in tune with his neck of the woods and in possession of some distinctly pliable morals. The Banbury Cross Murder Mystery stories are classic murder mysteries set in the rural market town of Banbury during the early 1960s, featuring the curmudgeonly Inspector Leslie Dykeman and the irascible Sergeant Stanley Shapes.
Ben’s writing places an emphasis on strongly developed characters and invariably comes served with a side-order of humour.
Born in London and brought up in Kent, Ben now lives in rural Northamptonshire in the English Midlands, with his family and a heavily over-worked computer.
