About this author


There was an item in Publishers Weekly yesterdayabout my new book. It’s called Underground Airlines, and it will come out probably in spring of 2016. The publisher is Mulholland Books, animprint of Little, Brown.


It probably goes without saying that I am super-excited about this news, not least because I’ve been working on this project for quite a while already—over a year at least, moving slowl...

“Because as any writer will tell you, an IDEA for a book is like falling in love, it’s all wild emotion and headlong rush, but the ACTUAL ACT of writing a book is like building a relationship: it is joyous, slow, fragile, frustrating, exhilarating, painstaking, exhausting, worth it.”
Ben H. Winters, The Last Policeman

“It must be that there is something in the hearts of human beings, some natural fluid perhaps, that insists on happiness, even confronted with the most powerful arguments against it.”
Ben H. Winters, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

“He books it into that little playground there. I mean the guy is zooming like the Road Runner, skidding through the gravel and the slush and everything. I’m yelling, “Police, police! Stop, motherfucker!”

‘You do not yell, “Stop, motherfucker.”’

‘I do. Because you know, Palace, this is it. This is the last chance I get to run after a perp yelling, “Stop, motherfucker.”
Ben H. Winters, The Last Policeman

Nancy Rosser Hi Ben! Just finished World of Trouble and loved it! However, I wondered why poor Hen could not have found Nico alive so they could be together at the end. I did think it was a good thing that he returned to Ruthie and the Amish at the end but the events leading up to that seemed so violent and sad. I hope when faced with such an outcome i could behave better.
Let your fans know what's next for you! Good luck with all your future projects!
Nancy Rosser
