Welcome, and thank you for stopping by the Official Website of Benjamin Laskin.


Benjamin writes fiction and is hopelessly genre-challenged. Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, he spent too large a chunk of his adult life in Japan. He now lives in the legend-rich town of Tzfat (Safed) in Israel’s upper Galilee. He’s become convinced that the doppelgänger of everyone he has ever known passes through the humble, kooky little town.

Benjamin spends most of every day writing, thinking about writing, reading others’ writing, and is always worried that he’s not writing more or fast enough. He’s come to believe that as long as he is making up stories, the Universe will grant him another day. Dumb, but it has worked so far!

He lives mostly on hardboiled eggs, salad and sardines, smiles at every dog he sees, and hasn’t owned a TV since 2006. He avoids crowds, noise, and small talk, unless it’s from a dog. Despite these quirks, he does enjoy engaging with fans and readers, and he always responds to email.

Benjamin Laskin writes fun, genre-bending novels that inspire, uplift, and entertain. If you like stories and characters that stay with you long after you’ve put down the book, please give one of his novels a try.
