Ben Davis Author

Hi! I’m Ben and I write stuff.

Mostly I write stuff for kids. I’ve even won awards for it. I started my career with the teen series THE PRIVATE BLOG OF JOE COWLEY, before moving into upper middle grade with books like the THE SOUP MOVEMENT, WHAT’S THAT IN DOG YEARS and MY BRILLIANT PLAN TO FIX EVERYTHING, which was inspired by my day job as a postman. These days I’m having stupid amounts of fun in lower middle grade with the LENNY LEMMON series. I’ve worked with publishers like OUP, Nosy Crow and Scholastic.

In addition to kids stuff, I’m also a bit of a show-off, and was a regular on the stand-up comedy circuit for many years. These days, I sometimes perform poetry, and have won several slams, with poems like MY GRANDAD’S A NUDIST.
Every now and then, I’ll dabble in a bit of journalism, and have written features for the Sunday Times, the Independent and BookTrust.

I live in Staffordshire with my wife, our two kids and couple of rats.
