My name is Benjamin Gott. (You can call me Ben if you want. Everyone does.) Since 2001, I’ve been a middle school English teacher and occasional administrator at three great schools in Connecticut. I write YA fiction (primarily thrillers), and several of my non-fiction articles have appeared in both regional and national publications. In my spare time, I make music and take pictures, 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, click around the site. (Heck, why not read a few of my articles, download some tunes, or check out my photographs while you’re here?) You can also send me a message (I promise I’ll write back!) or look me up on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Instagram.
