Benjamin Shaw was born in Hampshire, in the UK. After studying English at university, he worked in computers, despite not knowing much about them. He then went back to college, became a film journalist and was lucky enough to travel the world, interviewing people like James Bond.
After a decade in publishing, he decided to become an author and is currently writing The Evan Boyd Adventures; the bestselling young adult fiction series about a reluctant teen hero.
Combining Mission: Impossible, with a dash of The Goonies and a healthy dollop of Back To The Future, the Evan Boyd books are bursting with action, stunts, gadgets and a little bit about the pain of growing up.
Benjamin lives on the south coast of the UK, with his lovely wife and his rather awesome dog, Humphrey.
