J.J. (James) DiBenedetto was born in Yonkers, New York. He attended Case Western Reserve university, where as his classmates can attest, he was a complete nerd. Very little has changed since then.

He currently lives in Arlington, Virginia with his beautiful wife and their cat (who has thoroughly trained them both). When he's not writing, James works in the direct marketing field, enjoys the opera, photography and the New York Giants, among other interests.

The "Dreams" series is James' first published work.

I was never able to finish anything else; the closest I got was a meandering story that got to 70 pages and completely lost focus to the point that I had no idea what story I was telling!

Then, in 2012, a friend sold her first novel, and that got me to take a look at the old manuscript from 1997. I rewrote it from the first page and ended up with "Dream Student" - and then six more novels (so far!) following it...(less)

J.J. DiBenedetto, Dream Student

“The movie was great, too.  They sometimes play old movies at the campus theater on Saturdays, and tonight was “The Thin Man.”  It’s the one from the thirties with the husband and wife detectives.  To tell the truth though, I liked the dog best.”
