Hi, my name's Benjamin Solah. I'm a horror writer and Marxist revolutionary from Sydney, Australia. It's a funny combination that kind of worked out in the end. The world is a fucking scary place and I want to change it. There's nothing better to describe how fucking scary the world is then a good horror story.

I've always been a storyteller and creator and I loved books from a young age. When I was just a little kid, I remember wanting to be a cartoonist and I made a whole world of characters. When I was a little older, I read R.L Stine's 'Goosebumps' series and I dabbled here and there with my own tales; one about a potato with big teeth out for revenge against a family who had mashed potato one night. I did make minor attempts at novels, but they never really went far. The dream, though, was still with me.

High School was a little different. I didn't read or write for fun that much, but sometimes I'd remember my dream and have a stab at it, only to be whisked away by computer games or some other distraction. It wasn't until I was 17 that I seriously thought about writing. I wrote 'McSean' and showed it around. People liked it and I started a small a homepage. I spent most of 2004 working out a decent novel idea whilst finishing high school and working on more shorts.
