Benjamin is the author of eleven books, including five Star Fighters books (2, 4, 6, 7 and 9) published under the name Max Chase and published by Bloomsbury Books. As the series’ lead-author, Benjamin loves going into schools to share these exciting space-adventures - inspiring pupils to read more and to write for fun. He is also the ghost-author of three books in another popular and long-running series for children (for ages 7-9) and two books for a new Oxford Reading Tree series. He teaches writers of all ages in a range of schools and organisations, including Oxford University Continuing Education, the Writers’ Summer School and the Uppingham Summer School. 

When I heard Beanstalk was going to help young readers in Norfolk improve their skills, I knew I wanted to support them in anyway I could. Reading to me is like breathing, life without it would be unthinkable.
