A.J. Benson

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m a new author  and just released my first co-authored work, Quest for the King, on September 30th, 2016!
I am also working on a young adult fantasy novel, The Sword of Ferbandey, as part of the planned DREAMING OF FEDONTA series.
I enjoy non-fiction books on a range of topics to include inspirational and health, but fantasy is my favorite genre. (You can find other authors’ fantasy novel series here, and new young adult fantasy novel releases here.) I love the whimsy of fantasy, the depth of myth and lore, and the excitement of magic. As the stories of the realm of Fedonta come to life, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. 

I have been writing and editing as an analyst for 20 years and am currently a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.

You can also see what I’ve been up to by checking out AJ in the News.

Welcome! Join the Journey…

I love the thin place where the mystical meets magical. On this site, you’ll find information not only about my journey, but also about fantasy and writing conferences, and more.
Quest for the King is a 60-day devotional written as a medieval fantasy novella.You can read the first two days and see about whether you are interested in the King’s quest. It was released on September 30th, 2016!
The story The Sword of Ferbandey takes place in a medieval, magical land called Fedonta, which can only be entered through a door in your dreams. You can join Fae O’Landry on the journey by clicking here.
If you are more interested in joining me on my journey as an author, there are tons of tidbits I have gathered for authors in the Restricted Section of the Library under Quill Tips on my company website for The Quill’s Lair.
To help you around these magical pages, here are a few pointers. You can check out writing conferences and competitions, as well as Renaissance Fairs, Harry Potter events, and Faerie Festivals in Heralds,  play wizard or dragon online games, or find fantasy crafts on some of my pages.
I also would love to hear from you! You can Send Me a Scroll via brownie to ask about my fantasy novel in-the-works or just about anything. The magic of the world can be found all around us, if we just know where to look!


May every day feel magical and be an adventure…
