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)
