BEN TYLER was born and raised in Texas. In his teens he moved to London to study theatre arts before returning to the states to begin his stage career in Los Angeles. After appearing in numerous productions, including the award-winning dramas "Uptight/Downtown," as well as "The Men's Changing Room at Macy's," he began creating monologues and discovered his talent for writing. His first published novel, TRICKS OF THE TRADE, launched his career as an author.
Tyler's subsequent novels, HUNK HOUSE, GAY BLADES and ONE NIGHT STAND and his novellas, SATISFACTION, SPANISH EYES and NAUGHTY OR NICE have all been main selections of the Insight Out Book Club.
Tyler lives in the Hollywood Hills above Los Angeles. There, he writes and fantasizes about ... He's single but hopes to marry a guy who loves him for more than his amazing good looks, nips and money, and who appreciates the Carpenters' music. (And he's not joking about the Carpenters!) Must love dogs, too!

Where to find Ben Tyler online
All I Want for X-Mas
Bubbly and sweet natured, "All I Want for X-Mas" features musical-comedy TV legend Polly Pepper's efforts to find Mr. Right for her gay son. Polly is a slightly raunchier Auntie Mame (with a yen for risqué Internet chat rooms) and a slightly more sober version of AbFab's Patsy and Edina (with best friend/maid Placenta in tow).
After successfully skewering ego-driven Hollywood (Tricks of the Trade) and salacious reality TV shows (Hunk House), Tyler sets his sights on the backstabbing world of traveling ice-skating exhibitions and delivers an entertaining all-gay version of "All About Eve"-- on ice!
Tricks of the Trade
In this sharply written debut novel, Ben Tyler spins a wickedly witty, name-dropping yarn of a spurned studio publicist who's determined to leave no stone unturned--and no closet unopened--in his quest for vengeance...
Ben Tyler's "Spanish Eyes" is hot, sexy, deeply romantic and moving.
