Ben Crofton is a lifelong Chicago suburban native, and has been an avid writer since high school. What attracts Ben to horror? Mainly the fact that he has always found the genre to be highly entertaining. That is, after all, the whole reason Ben writes - for the enjoyment and entertainment of others (and also because of fact that if he didn't write, he'd probably lose his mind).
In his spare time, Ben enjoys spending time with his family, working out, gardening, random home-improvement projects, gaming, reading, listening to (and, to a lesser extent, writing) music, volunteerism, and a host of other mismatched and potentially confounding activities.
