R.J. Benson has been writing paranormal urban fantasy, and fantasy romance since she was a young girl. She studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art, graduating with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Game Design and a minor in Creative Writing.

Her childhood was spent among the northern hills in the blue-grass state and some with the huskies up north. For a time, her soul was under contract to the government. But she saw the world through this contract, meeting peoples of many lands and cultures.

Benson enjoys spending her days with her puppers, reading novels and comics or, playing video games. She spends a great deal of time creating original stories or, sometimes, fanfiction just for fun.

She is an avid supporter of the LGBTQI+ and BLM community

So this summer im playing catchup on Sarah Maas's Throne of Glass series. Love heroines in fantasy. Hard to find a good bad ass heroine thats not super anniying.
But my list also includes a new author Allegra Pescatore's Where Shadows Lie. Then on to my curiosity about all the hype: Red, White and Royal Blue. Its not often an LGBT book makes the best seller list and gets so much publicity. Im down! Then next on my list is Coffee-to-Go by Grayson Bell and Winter Rising by Richard Amos. One is a lgbt romance and the second is a action adventure. Excited to finally rest with a good book this summer after I graduate in May. (less)

It wasn't until I finally decided to create an outline that I was able to finish the whole book within a couple months. I used that same method with my second. Its the process that works for me. Writer's Block always shows up when I don't have an outline. How I envy "pantser" writers...(less)
