Ben Warden has loved storytelling for as long as he can remember, but he didn't get truly involved in writing until University. Having been one of those annoying 80's kids, who constantly ran around with a home video camera (filming nothing of interest), Ben set off to Canterbury Christ Church University to take a degree in Film, Television and Radio. In his second year he got the opportunity to take a single module in scriptwriting and quickly found his love for writing.
Looking back, storytelling has always been part of Ben's life. As a kid he would write songs with friends and siblings, making up stories with his Dad and draw with his Mum. Ben's love for storytelling comes from the way stories can bring people together and the particular pull to writing comes from a fascination with problem solving and the challenge that structuring and writing a story presents.
Having spent several years in Canterbury and a brief time in Northamptonshire, Ben is back living and writing in York and has recently graduated from an MA in Creative Writing at York St John University.
Ben has written for several years, in a number of formats, 'Life Without' is his first novel. The next is on its way.
