Writing as: James R. Benn

According to the bio on Amazon: "I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida with my wife Deborah Mandel, a retired psychotherapist who currently works as a copyeditor and writer who offers many insights, a good critical read, and much else. 

I'm a graduate of the University of Connecticut and received my MLS degree from Southern Connecticut State University. I am a member of the Mystery Writers of America, and the Author's Guild. I worked in the library and information technology fields for over thirty-five years before retiring to work full-time.

I've learned two valuable lessons since I started writing which have helped me greatly. The first is a quote from Oscar Wilde, who said "The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of one's pants to a chair." The second is from novelist Rachel Basch, who told me "the story has to move down, as well as forward." Both sound simple. Neither is."
