About this author

Oh, hello! I'm Ben, Benjamin Joseph Kuniyoshi White if you're not into the whole brevity thing, BJK White if you're somewhere in the middle. I'm sometimes an author person. Most of my books would fall under the umbrella of 'Girls Kicking Arse', and probably if you had to choose a section of the library to put them in, Young Adult would be the safest bet.

To get specific, I'm the leastselling author of the Miya Black, Pirate Princess series, as well as the superhero diary of Charlotte Powers, the zombie-infested unlife of Imogen Shroud, the slightly depressing world of Resonance, and a whimsical little book called The Boy & Little Witch.

I live in Nelson, New Zealand with my super-wife and two busy young daughters, and sometimes I get time...more


Aha, pretty good lately? Getting a little better? I mean I can’t say it’s been a great year, in terms of productivity. I hit a low point around the start of the year, sick, tired, no energy, sales were hilariously terrible—in January I sold less than twenty books, in February less than ten—and generally I felt that whatever my personal thoughts about my books, the fact was that not a lot of peo...

Ben White liked a quote
8696
Some fish were jumping up the beach and into the tree, which struck me as an odd thing for a fish to do, but I tried not to be judgmental about it. I was feeling pretty raw about my own species, and not much inclined to raise a quizzical eyebrow at others. The fish could play about in trees as much as they liked if it gave them pleasure, so long as they didn't try and justify themselves or tell each other it was a malign god who made them play in trees.Douglas Adams

Maybe because it's been just so long since I found anything worth reading, but I enjoyed the heck out of this. Girls kicking arse with commerce, diplomacy, the power of stories and the strength of community. Good stuff. Hugely recommended.

“When things are at their blackest, I say to myself, 'Cheer up, things could be worse.' And sure enough, they get worse.”
Robert Lynn Asprin

John Brunner
“It's supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button. ”
John Brunner, Stand on Zanzibar

Lois McMaster Bujold
“Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign

Terry Pratchett
“Vimes felt his hand begin to move of its own accord--
And stopped. Red rage froze.
There was The Beast, all around him. And that's all it was. A beast. Useful, but still a beast. You could hold it on a chain, and make it dance, and juggle balls. It didn't think. It was dumb. What you were, what you were, was not The Beast.”
Terry Pratchett, Night Watch

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
