Hi, I’m Ben.

I am an author, editor and publisher from Bromley, south east London, UK.

Free fairy tale – A Cadence

A Cadence is a brand new 4,000-word fairy tale. It’s the first in a series of stories I’m making available for free to read on your e-reader, smartphone or PC.

If you’re interested in storytelling and fairy tales, or just like a good old-fashioned yarn with a fussy narrator, you should give it a go.


‘It’s a re-telling [that] treads sensitively and lovingly across old ground’

Many lovers of fairy tales are getting fed up with the mindless treatment they have received on film and TV recently. This story is something different. It acknowledges its place in the sea of stories. It’s a re-telling, as all new fairy tales are, but I hope it treads sensitively and lovingly across old ground. I am a lover of fairy tales, and I have written a story that I would like to read myself.

Like the sound of it? Enter your email address and you’ll get A Cadence to read, straight away, on your e-reader, smartphone or PC. When the next story is ready, I’ll let you know by email. All the usual anti-spam stuff applies: you can unsubscribe at any time, and I won’t send you anything other than what you signed up for – stories!
