Ben is a (mostly) retired adventurer who has traveled across Tibet, climbed to 18,000 feet on Mt. Everest, and solo backpacked wilderness areas. He now writes adventure stories for boys and girls—tales of lost gold and river caves and flying with eagles; stories of friendships that endure through adversity and danger; and adventures that inspire and educate and, most of all, entertain. Ben works with teachers, schools, and literacy organizations spreading the word that books are vital—and fun. Learn more here.
