About the Author

Born, raised and educated in Portland, Oregon, Steve ditched law school for a computer - something he has never regretted. Starting as a graphical applications instructor, he maintained a list of famous clients, from Joe Barbera at Cartoon Network, to John Hench, V.P. at Walt Disney Imagineering, and many in between. From there he went on to write speeches for the C.E.O. of Nihon Kenko Zoushin Kenkyukai, Toshizo Watanabe, and traveled the world, creating multimedia extravaganzas at Watanabe's conventions and events.

Benton immersed himself in video games in his spare time - mostly in MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games). He enjoyed watching the interaction between the players. Inspired by the drama, combined with the fantastical environments in which they would play, he created a series of short stories on his blog, centered on the protagonist who would eventually become Max Gunnarsson.

Two years later he dissected his blogs, took what worked, deleted what didn't, and wrote The Primuli Prophecies: LIVES OF FUTURE-PAST, LIVES OF LOST ANGELS and LIVES OF THE PROVECTUS. Recently, he published a novella, HOW TO NOT DIE IN POST-APOCALYPTIC HOLLYWOOD, which brings readers back to the world depicted in LIVES OF LOST ANGELS; this time with an all-new protagonist.
The Primuli Universe is a new concept; a new genre in storytelling. While there have been some novels that mix science fiction and fantasy (via authors such as Piers Anthony), never before have the unknown and mystical been explained in such vivid detail as in Benton's books. His readers learn what magic really is, where the gods come from, and how space/time functions.

A fantastic Sci Fi adventure with plenty of humor. First of three books and a cliffhanger ending but all three are FREE as is the BOXED SET TRILOGY! Could use a bit of editing but is still the best read I've had in a long time. - MLS

There will be more books. I am currently shopping LILI G AND THE SECRET VAMPIRES (12-14) to lit agents and publishing houses. It documents the adventures of the Gunnarssons' adopted daughter Liliana, as she attends Max's secondary school on Azul. So... well, you know Lili. Imagine her with the Williams twins, snotty, inactive vampire students and some activated vamps to boot! Next on the list for Max and Jennie is "METATRON'S CUBE", a time travel adventure. Max and Jennie are given their first mission as Prīmulī, and they have to hunt down Edmund, the apprentice of Merlin (of King Arthur's Court), who has unfortunately found the powerful magic-enabled object. This allows Edmund to travel through time, where he unwittingly changes history. Max and Jennie not only have to find him, but they have to clean up his messes in the order they were created. To make it worse, Jennie still doesn't have her ghanlo. So, MLS, please do not fret. More is on the way. And yes, you are right - the books need some editing :) P.S. I put 5 stars so it wouldn't mess with your awesome rating!
