From Erisian Entertainment website:
Ben is the cynical, maladjusted geek who came up with the ideas behind the d10 System, the Lady's Rock campaign setting, Rooks' Haven, the Malaclypse Cycle novels, and everything else we've published, so far.
If that doesn't give you a window into the dark undulating pustule that he calls a soul, I don't know what will.
Ben grew up in Algoma, Wisconsin, a city that is little more than a speed bump on the road of life. He is the oldest of four equally messed up children. He graduated from Algoma High School before (briefly) attending the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh. He was employed by a number of companies that paid him to do a variety of mind-numbing tasks. In the end, his disgust with his fellow human beings caused him to seek like-minded individuals to work with. Not finding any, he settled for work with Erisian Entertainment.
Ben is married to Michelle. They bred - twice that Michelle will admit to - producing two beautiful children that Ben is in the process of thoroughly corrupting.
