ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ben Langdon’s stories reflect the collision between the ordinary and the extraordinary.

He has written for adults (Forget, to Live and The Scoundrel’s Wife) and for Young Adults (The Miranda Contract and The Adventures of Charlie Conti), as well as editing a couple of short story anthologies (This Mutant Life and Bad Company).

He teaches at a local high school and has presented at conferences such as OzComic Con, the Hero Round Table, Hero Town and the Kang O Meerteek Writers Panel. When he’s speaking, he usually tackles issues such as reflecting diversity in superhero fiction, the power of empathy, representing the local and universal in writing about place, the importance of identifying self in characters and the positive effects of reading for young readers and adults.

He lives in Geelong, Victoria.
