Fox Benwell

Fox Benwell lives in the picturesque English city of Bath, where he studied for an MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. Now he writes, runs creative writing workshops for teens and adults, and works retail at unsociable hours. All of which is great, but he’d rather be off exploring deserts and jungles elsewhere.

Having seen a good chunk of the world, Fox is a keen advocate for diversity in life and on bookshelves and he loves nothing more than acquainting herself with both. As such, you can find him being opinionated all over the internet. He co-runs an online space that highlights diverse experience and promotes inclusion in YA fiction.

He’s also a stubborn git; it’s how he ended up finishing his debut novel, but once resulted in him eating a giant hairy spider. Uttering ‘I dare you’ is like putting a match to tinder. Be careful how you use it.

Fox is available to run events/workshops.

The Last Leaves Falling
  • The Last Leaves Falling

  • And these are they. My final moments. They say a warrior must always be mindful of death, but I never imagined that it would find me like this . . .

    Japanese teenager, Sora, is diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Lonely and isolated, Sora turns to the ancient wisdom of the samurai for guidance and comfort. But he also finds hope in the present; through the internet he finds friends that see him, not just his illness.

    This is a story of friendship and acceptance, and testing strength in an uncertain future.
