Benjamin Bjostad is an author of contemporary fiction. He has spent his whole life chasing peak experiences, from throwing raves to attending Burning Man, but maintains it’s only for research and that his habit of chasing off in search of the next crazy adrenaline-filled adventure (pronounced ‘catastrophe’) is solely for the purpose of making him a better writer. Those who know him know better, but they put up with him anyway. When not engaged in shenanigans or drunkenly ranting about literature or politics, Ben works as a copywriter and communications manager for a mid-sized hobby business, saving the world through superior marketing copy and valiant SEO best practices. He is hard at work on his first novel, ‘The Sound of Winter’.
