Ben Coleman


Ben Coleman is an Arkansas native, who grew up half feral on the streets of Springfield, Mo. He then took the good sense to serve his country and joined the Navy. He's traveled extensively, to every state in the Union, except Alaska and Hawaii, still on the bucket list, and to more than 15 countries. He's a devoted gamer, role player, and grass roller who enjoys nothing so much as a cold beer, good cigarette, and good friends. His best friend is his fiancee, for whom he says he owes everything. Outside of writing, he is a devoted student of all things home repair, cooking related, sans starting fires (which he is of course fully qualified to put out) and a devoted puppy daddy to five rescue dogs, and one puppy cat. He lives in East Tn, with his tiny family, but plans to move soon, perhaps to a town near you!

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I like to keep abreast of current affairs. In the good ole days that meant a newspaper, but these days it mostly consists of your news feed on Facebook. I fancy fiction writing most of all, though historical biographies are also a favorite. And of course history books of all kinds and any period. But never instructions, no instructions of any kind. I'm a guy, we're genetically disposed to not read instructions, ever.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I don't have one. I read paper books. Just haven't gotten with the times yet I guess.

1775 and a desperate war for freedom has begun. But another war is about to be fought; a war in the shadows. The Freemasons and rivals the Illuminati are entering into a battle for control. All wars must be fought with weapons. And the greatest weapon is knowledge. It is a hidden knowledge that American Freemasons lead by Benjamin Franklin and John Paul Jones mean to obtain at all cost.
