Benedict Patrick is from a small town in Northern Ireland called Banbridge, but has been living and working in Scotland since he moved there at the age of eighteen. Tragically, that was quite a while ago.

He has been writing for most of his life, and has been reading for pretty much all of it (with help from mum and dad at the beginning). Benedict's life changed when a substitute primary school teacher read his class part of The Hobbit and later loaned him the book – he fell in love with the fantasy genre and never looked back.

They Mostly Come Out At Night is his debut novel, and is the first novel in The Yarnsworld series.

Writing isn't easy (if it was, would it be worth doing?), but there's always a way to push through if you have goals to hit. It definitely helps me to have my stories planning in a decent amount of detail before starting on the first draft. Oddly, I also find that it helps if I don't have a lot of time in which to write - it means that I force myself to be economical in how I use my writing time. In other words, I quit worrying about what to write and just put words to paper. Some of them might even be worth keeping.(less)

I want to talk to you about a guy called Brandon Barr. You may have heard about him. Brandon is a USA Today bestselling fantasy author. Brandon is a husband, and father to three boys.
Brandon is dying.
That’s a pretty bitter pill to swallow, and I’m truly sorry to darken your day with this news, but there is a slight silver lining to this terrible story.
Despite his health issues, Brandon has w...
