Benedict Martin


Benedict Martin lives in Ottawa with his lovely wife and two wonderful children. He also has three pet rats: Moochie, Sniffles, and Grover. They're surprisingly intelligent, those rats. In fact, one night Benedict woke to Moochie telling him the plot of a novel he should write. Benedict's wife swears it was a dream. And maybe it was, but Benedict's taken to leaving a pad of paper and a pen next to the rat cage. You know, just in case.

    My ten year old daughter loved this story. I gave it to her to read last night and she finished it this morning. The characters are fun, the story is exciting and it kept her entertained the entire time. Definitely a great read.

    Macabre is a good description for this story. It's also entertaining, holding my attention right to the end. A short, yet wonderful peek into a very bizarre world.
