About Me

Benjamin Grossman earned an MFA in Creating Writing from Rosemont College and his Bachelor’s Degree in English from Saint Joseph’s University alongside of a minor in Philosophy and a concentration in Theology.  His flash fiction pieces and poems are published or forthcoming in the Eunoia Review, The Rusty Nail, The Camel Saloon, and Apiary, etc. Also, he has written for flashfiction.net and blogs about the crumbling existence of taboo at thebreakdownoftaboo.wordpress.com. In addition, he served as a reader for Matter Press, a literary journal for compressed forms of writing. He currently works as a Professional Tutor in English, Writing, and Religious Studies at Rosemont College and lives just outside of Philadelphia with his future wife Laura.

His novel, The Land Without Footprints: Shadows Amongst Shadows, is published by Sweatshoppe Publications and available for sale on Amazon. The story is set in the Modern Middle Ages, the age after the ages of Earth, when humans inhabit a planet where, unbeknownst to them, the moons control every action. What remains of the Earth is confined to books. In fact, many have decided to live by the rules of those books once called fiction. But no fiction or reality rules over the Mystic. He rules by only two laws: obey his desires and obey your desires. His desires are twofold: virgins and immortality. However, the desires of his subjects are as wicked as ever known. But the Dagens, a family rooted in the old ways of society, cannot give into their desires. They cannot kill just to kill, hate just to hate, destroy just to destroy. Yet if society is to become what it once was, the Dagens must destroy freedom and place chains around those who no longer wish to be chained.
