Paul G Bens, Jr


Born in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, far too many years ago to be honest about, Paul G. Bens, Jr., has spent the majority of his adult life in the entertainment industry. His first foray into Hollywoodland was as a casting assistant on low budget feature films. He then graduated to Casting Associate and worked for three years on the NBC hit series "Night Court" as well as a dozen other short-lived series. As a film and television Casting Director he was responsible for the principal casting of yet even lower budget feature films, as well as the television series "Ned & Stacey," "Malcolm & Eddie," "Likely Suspects," and "Murder in Small Town X."

Outside of casting, Bens has been many things: a film producer, a file clerk, an altar boy, a bartender, a boy scout and, for a second-and-a-half, an actor. As an author, Bens' short fiction has appeared in Cemetery Dance, The Egg Box, Outsider Ink, Scared Naked, HeavyGlow, Bleeding Quill, Twisted Tongue, Velvet Mafia: Dangerous Queer Fiction, Chick Flicks, and Dark Discoveries. He has contributed to the anthologies The Devil's Coattails: More DIspatches from the Dark Frontier and Discoveries: The Best of Horror and Dark Fantasy. His debut novel "Kelland" won a Black Quill Award for Best Small Press Chill and is currently available from Lethe Press.
