Hi, my name is Ben. I'm 26 and I love writing, obviously. I live in Brisbane and study Creative Writing at Queensland University of Technology. I like reading and writing science fiction, but I also have a soft spot for romance. I am currently editing three different manuscripts, one of which is the novel adaptation of Blink, one of my short stories on Wattpad. My favourite book is Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, followed closely by Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? by Philip K Dick.
