Biography

Please take moment to write a quick review on Smashwords, Amazon, or both to show your support. I enjoy hearing from people who have read my books, so feel free to email me with any comments or questions at: Kelso1900@yahoo.com

Most of my books are available through Amazon.com if you would like to purchase a print copy. Just type in keyword: Ben L. Hughes in the search bar.

Recently Updated:

Dominant Species: I have revised a section of the book, mainly the first chapter, to improve the story and smooth out a few rought patches.

Dreamstone: per reader feedback, I am giving this book a complete makeover... less romance and more sci-fi action and adventure. If the book sounds interesting, you may want wait to download it until I release a newer version by the end of the year (2018).

I just recently released a full color rhyming children's book: The Dragon Egg That Rolled Away. Unfortunately the compressed version is still too large to download into Smashwords, so for now, it's only available on Amazon in print form.

If you are looking for my adult 18+ books:

Since I write both children's books and erotica, I am in the process of separating my accounts so that someone doesn't accidentally purchase and adult book for a younger reader. To achieve this, my adult books will be penned under the name "Hugh Bennington", while all other works will remain "Ben L. Hughes".

The bio picture is of my son and I heading up the 4x4 road to the top of Mount Antero, Colorado.
