About Me

About Me

I was born in the Bronx, New York and grew up in Yonkers.  I was raised a Yankees and Giants fan, two faiths that I’ve kept throughout my life.  I have a day job:

The author with a co-worker. I leave it to the reader to decide who’s who!

I’m an only child, but I’ve got a pretty big extended family.  My relatives include the owner of one of the top ten pizza restaurants in the U.S.; a championship bicycle racer; a figure skater who nearly cracked the top ten in the U.S.; a gold prospector who moved to Alaska for several years; and a CEO.  I’ve also got at least two other authors that I know of in my family.

My lovely wife is an author as well, and you can check out her books at www.poshbytes.com.  There’s also a third member of our home, Danny:

The true head of the DiBenedetto household

I love to travel, although I haven’t gotten to do nearly enough of it.  I enjoy cooking, and I am very good at a few things.  I’ve got a decent eye for photography, but it’s very untrained (I have a few of my photos here on the site).  I like to think I’m a pretty decent writer.  And I’m a huge geek – give me almost any science fiction or fantasy and I’m happy.
