Benjamin Schramm


Benjamin Schramm grew up in a mountain community in the dark times before the internet. There wasn't a great deal to do on the hill and weekly trips down the mountain to procure supplies were just a fact of life. To expose him and his sister to the outside world, his mother made a point to treat them to a movie when time and money allowed. Films led to novels and before long the works of the great masters of science fiction changed his perspective on life.

While not the original path he imagined for himself, Benjamin Schramm now spends his hours translating the worlds and people his imagination dreams up to the written page. His one hope in life is that others find the same enjoyment in his works as he found the first time he was introduced to the universes of those that first paved the path of science fiction.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When not writing I spend most of my time healing/saving my friends in online games. For years I have been a druid healer in World of Warcraft and before that I was a Jenquai Defender in Earth and Beyond. Looking forward to Wildstar and serving my raid as a combat medic.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was a hideously rough draft of the first book in The Ninth series. At the time I was a full time college student with the vast majority of my classes being in the field of business. I had no idea how to write dialogue and it flowed as easily and naturally as a report on quarterly earnings.

However, Brent lodged himself right in the center of my brain and over time I refined and refined until I finally got a version of the story that didn't cause the eyeballs of friends and family to burst into flames on first read through.
