Ben Spies

Ben Spies is a young author living on the beautiful Kapiti Coast.

Ben’s passion for writing led him to become a published author at the young age of nine with his first book, Weirdo. The Magic Pencil followed soon after at age ten, and The World of Greek Mythology at age eleven.

Ben is fourteen years old now and is not showing any signs of slowing down. He has just finished writing his fourth book and first sci-fi novel – 2020 – a dystopian novel for pre-teen and young teenagers.
