Hi, I began writing high fantasy after a love affair with fantasy that has last pretty much all of my life. I'm a huge fan of Tolkien (of course), Frank Herbert (Dune),  Feist (Pug!), Donaldson, Weeks, and Brin. Nice mix of Fantasy and Sci-fi when I'm not doing IT stuff as an analyst. My 3 awesome daughters consume all my time when not working or writing.

I am lucky to share this work with close friends: my editors and illustrators. Scroll down to meet them.

​I'm a heavy electronics, computer science, and studio audio geek. I love science fiction and fantasy because I get to view the future without having to wait-- Silverberg's Majipoor touched both nerves at once. I love indie fiction like Eric's, M. Pax's, or Jennifer Foehner Wells'. I hang out with my gal, my dog, and my guitar when I'm not working or editing.

Ben Duffy

READER, CARTOGRAPHER, WEB DUDE

I'm a longtime friend of Eric Barnum and an even-longer-time fan of fantasy, science fiction, and tabletop RPGs. By day I'm a mild-mannered copy writer, graphic designer, and layout artist, primarily for the medical industry. By night I'm a heroic freelance reader for talented independent authors such as Eric. On weekends I exorcise the demons of encroaching middle age through the power of humbucking pickups and vacuum tube amplification. And in the depths of my secret, skull-shaped mountain lair, I quietly labor on my own debut novel, currently scheduled for completion on or about the day hell freezes over.

I've been an ardent reader of fantasy, science fiction and non-fiction history and science books for most of my life. I love lingering at the intersection of sci-fi/fantasy writing and hard science, where new words and ideas are often born. When not working as a systems and process improvement auditor, I spend my time creating chocolate recipes, sewing, singing and playing piano, and indulging my passion for new adventures with my family.
