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 old stories from when I was a kintergardener.
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 can see great things get done. I've tried to remember this lesson.
And while writing is my biggest passion, one of my other great passions is travel. I've spent a good portion of my twenties working and traveling in different countries. I've used this oportunity to learn about other cultures and have incoprorated many of my adventures into my writing.
The next trip is going to be big, travelling from Cambodia to England, with as much ground travel as I can do.
