About this author

Hi, I'm Ben. Look below for more info.

* My writing surprise is "Prettyboy: Fabulous Fifties Hollywood." Witty, illuminating, maddening, always funny, smart, honest, sophisticated, and dangerous. Prettyboy is super-aware of himself in Hollywood during 1954. Nuanced and imperfect as it is, Prettyboy is hilarious and intimate. Look for it on amazon.com. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

* My next surprise is my urban adventure novel Dubrovnik. American spy Alexander Crown seeks position for his secret mission. His partner Ivan Andric insists with helping their new friends. That is when humility and killing begins.

All my novels are available as Kindle download and paperback editions.

DUBROVNIK (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 21, 2012 07:06PM
Description: The walled-in city of Dubrovnik is the rich paradise as the backdrop. Dubrovnik spans friendships and love, lyrical images and palpable situations. Alexander Crown’s demeanor draws you in. He's physically challenging and his diplomacy is brutal. His hunger for Croatian independence is insatiable. His arrogance with his partner Ivan Andric, could help end tyranny and establish democracy in Croatia, long ravaged by greed, deception and deadly obsessions. Dubrovnik is fiction. Photos of Ciy and surrounding areas are included as complementary visuals.
KISSING FREUD (Literature & Fiction)
