My name is Benjamin Gott. (You can call me Ben if you want to—everyone does.) I’m a writer: mostly of YA fiction (primarily thrillers) but also of non-fiction. (My biggest claim to fame is that one of my anonymous internet comments was featured on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart—but that’s a story for another time!) Professionally, I’ve been a middle school English teacher and occasional administrator at three great schools in Connecticut since 2001. I also serve as an education specialist and organizing consultant with In Order to Succeed®, one of the greater NYC area’s preeminent organization and concierge moving services. In my spare time, I make music, watch horror movies, listen to Britpop and ’90s R&B, and annoy my neighbors by refusing on principle to pick up the twigs in my backyard. I don’t have a dog (even though dogs are great!), I love ice cream (favorite flavor: Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup), and my ears pop every time I get on an airplane.
If you want to find out more about who I am and what I do, it’s all here. You can also send me a message (I promise I’ll write back!) or look me up on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, or Instagram.
