J. D. Benabides
My name is Julian Deane Benabides.

I'm a twenty something-year-old author and I've been writing since I can remember. In fact, my mom STILL has a notebook full of stories I wrote when I was in kintergarden.

I wrote my first novel when I was 17 (It wasn't very good) but it taught me that if you work at something, and work hard, you'll see amazing things get done. This ethic has really meshed into every area of my life.

And while writing is my biggest passion, one of my other great passions is travel. I've spent over two years teaching English in Asia (mostly Tokyo and Seoul), and I've been using this time to save money and plan my trips. You can see a few pics here from Asia, which has been incredibly good to me.

The next trip is taking shape, and it's gonna be a big one. You can learn about here
