STEPHANIE M BENNION
is a writer, musician and part-time civil servant,
born and bred in the Black Country but now living in Hastings, England.
Writing as Steph Bennion, her witty space-opera
mysteries for young adults and adults young-at-heart are a reaction to
the dearth of alternative heroes amidst bookshelves swamped by tales of
the supernatural, not that there's anything wrong with a bit of fantasy
now and then...
