AJ Benson has a great love of fantasy works–both written and film. It is something she enjoys sharing with her sons.

AJ is a debut author with the publication of Quest for the King. She has a Master’s Degree in International Affairs from The George Washington University and has been writing and editing as an analyst for almost 20 years. She is currently a member of Maryland Writers Association, the APEX-writers group, and a regular participant (i.e. tribe) at the  annual Superstars Writing Seminar.

AJ enjoys the whimsy of young adult fantasy, the depth of myth and lore, and the excitement of magic. She loves the epic struggle between good and evil. She also reads non-fiction books on a range of topics to include devotionals and health-related books. 

AJ lives in Maryland with her two sons, two dogs and two cats.
