My name is Ken Lindsey, and I am now 29 years old.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember, and will continue to write until there are no white pages left for me. I write for myself, it's a release-a breath, and I write for my children. I want them to know that there are other worlds out there, worlds with real heroes, and worlds made up of whatever colors they can imagine. My Big Girl, my Princess, my Baby Girl, and my Baby Boy- they make my world so much bigger.
Recently (depending on if it takes me another year or two to update this page again) I finished the first draft of my first novel. It's an incredibly exciting time for me, and I can't wait to start revisions.
I have also started working on my second, "Clockwork Charlie." It's a new venture for me, and I'm stepping out of my comfort zone on this one.
In the times between, I write short stories, and even dabble in some poetry. If there's anything else you'd like to know, feel free to ask.

- A Job From Hell (Ancient Legends Book 1)
on July 18, 2011
A Job From Hell was another quick read for me. Jayde did a great job of giving her readers well rounded characters and a plot that was fast paced, but easy to follow. My biggest worry for this series is just how saturated the PNR market has become, I would hate to see this jewel get buried and lost in PNR purgatory. (I'm saying you should read it and tell your friends lol)
There is a big, open world here, filled with vampires, demons, dangerous shadows and much more. Of course, it wouldn't be paranormal ROMANCE if there wasn't a love story. Our protagonist deals with love and lust and relationship issues all throughout the book, and it blends well into the story and helps keep the reading moving forward.
This is one that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys PNR novels. I give A Job From Hell 5 stars
- Castles: A Fictional Memoir of a Girl with Scissors
on Aug. 09, 2011
Wow am I a slacker! Sorry for skipping out again last week, but I have a review for you today:)
Castles: A Fictional Memoir of a Girl with Scissors. Castles is a is a horror/revenge story written by Benjamin X. Wretlind.
When Maggie was six, she hid from desert storms under the sink where the Comet and Windex were kept. Now twenty, she welcomes the storms. Maggie has been abused, torn apart by the sins of others and constantly feels as if she is living on the verge of some grand epiphany. Then again, she may just be insane. Maggie doesn't know if the four bodies she dismembered and placed inside a rusted Volkswagen Bus are the only bricks left to her castle in the sky, but she hopes you'll understand if they're not. Castles is Maggie's story, a literary horror novel about love and redemption, belief and revenge and what brings a person to madness. Set in a nameless desert in a nameless town, it is the view into the life of a young woman who wonders if madness is really mad.
Wow. As some of you may already know, I am a huge fan of Stephen King. If someone had handed me Castles, and asked me to guess the author, I would have said King without much doubt in my mind. This story is well written and fast paced and I devoured it in something like three hours.
Right from the beginning you fall in love with Maggie, a young girl who has had a very tough life. Abusive men, a cold and distant mother, and a grandmother that seems to hold things together, while at the same time seems to be losing her mind.
Benjamin made me care about his characters and the story, and he did so by showing us their lives, rather than telling us we should care about them. The only complaint I could even imagine is that I wish the story could have continued. The paperback weighs in at about 188 pages, and Castles is available in both paperback and ebook format.
