Ben Reeder read The Hobbit on a road trip in sixth grade, and checked out the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy from his school library the next semester. From there, he moved on to writers like Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Robert E. Howard and CJ Cherryh. When other kids were recreating their favorite scenes from the Star Wars movies, he was creating his own worlds and stories in his back yard. In high school, he wrote some of those stories down and let his friends read them, getting the handwritten pages back with demands for more.
When he graduated from high school, he joined the Air Force, and soon after arriving at his first duty station, discovered the Society for Creative Anachronisms. After spending years honing his craft as a writer and working in a variety of interesting jobs, he self-published his first book in 2014, and a year later, was writing full time. He is the author of the Zompoc Survivor series and The Demon’s Apprentice series.
Raised in Texas, he is a naturalized resident of Missouri, where he lives with his wife Randi and several cats. While rumors of being a superhero have been disproven, both he and The Doctor have not been seen in the same place at the same time.
