Ben Reeder was found in a pineapple patch near Honolulu, Hawai’i and adopted by an unsuspecting Air Force couple. He grew up in South Texas reading Tolkien, Asimov and Robert E. Howard, and writing action stories for his friends in high school.
He currently lives in Missouri with his girlfriend and two orange cats, Toby and Musaba. Musaba believes himself to be his writing partner, and closely supervises every aspect of the writing process. Musaba also claims credit for all the good parts.
