Meet the Author: Benjamin Thomas

MeetAuthor-BenjaminTBenjamin Thomas is the author of Jack Be Quick, an edge-of-your-seat thriller in which a copycat murderer mimics the killings of Jack the Ripper. It keeps you guessing until the very end, and the historical details sprinkled in with the contemporary setting are nothing short of genius.

Benjamin Thomas is a huge horror buff, video game aficionado, and former EMT.  But there’s more to Benjamin than meet’s the eye…

A few things you may not know, according to Benjamin Thomas:

    • The X-Files Season One, Episode Twenty “Darkness Falls” is my go-to re-run show after a rough day. Something about the creepy crawlies coming down from the trees gets me every time. Not to mention young Duchovny is just ridiculously cool.
    • In my non-writing life, I’ve had seven jobs in the past nine years because I can’t for the life of me figure out what I want to do in this world.
    • Even if I have settled on a title for a work in progress, I can’t put it on the page or tell anyone what it is until the story or book is done or else it’ll  never get finished.

Benjamin’s advice for writers:


Favorite *Personal Writing Advice?

Impostor syndrome exists and it sucks. But finishing a piece and having it published is a gratifying and worthwhile achievement. There needs to be balance though. Every post on social media can’t be about your book or your story, but at the same time, people do want to hear about it. Like the Jedi believe with the force, there must be balance. All good things come from it.
