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 DiversifYA.com: 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.
