Hadlyme, Connecticut resident, author James R. Benn, is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and received his MLS degree from Southern Connecticut State University. Benn worked in both the library and information technology fields for over thirty-five years before he quit the “day job routine” in 2011 to write full-time. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the Author’s Guild. He has written many captivating novels from the Billy Boyle World War II mystery series to Traumatized: the Story of a State Trooper – a collaborative work of non-fiction with CT State Trooper, John G. Patterson, and Benn’s wife, Deborah Mandel, LPC. On writing, Benn refers to two quotes, “The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of one’s pants to a chair,” (Oscar Wilde), and “…the story has to move down, as well as forward” (novelist Rachel Basch), both of which, he states, “...sound simple. Neither is.”
All programs at the Enfield Public Library are free and everyone is welcome. For more information on the Friends of the Enfield Library please contact: Rob Sweeney 860-749-9324 or Betsy Pillitteri 860-749-3578.
