He is the author of the bestselling middle-grade series, Darkmouth - which is currently being developed into a big screen animation. Darkmouth was nominated for the Waterstones Prize.

From there he went on to study animation at Surrey Institute of Art & Design, and worked as Head of Animation in a media company. Since 2008, Ben has been working as a children's book illustrator from his shared studio in Brighton.
