About meBorn in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, far too many years ago to be honest about, Paul G. Bens, Jr., has spent the majority of his adult life in the entertainment industry. His first foray into Hollywoodland was as a casting assistant on the feature films Trip to Spirit Island and Martians Go Home. He then graduated to Casting Associate and worked for three years on the NBC hit series Night Court as well as the short-lived series Walter & Emily, Good & Evil and The Linda Lavin Show. As a film and television Casting Director he was responsible for the principal casting of such fine (ahem!) feature films as Death Ring, Evil Obsession and Flipping, as well as the television series Ned & Stacey, Malcolm & Eddie, Likely Suspects, Murder in Small Town X and a string of unsold pilots. Outside of casting, Bens has been many things: a film producer, a file clerk, an altar boy, a bartender (still makes killer martinis), a boy scout and, for a second-and-a-half, an actor.

As an author, Bens' short fiction has appeared in The Egg Box, Outsider Ink, Scared Naked, HeavyGlow, Bleeding Quill, Twisted Tongue, Velvet Mafia: Dangerous Queer Fiction, Chick Flicks and Cemetery Dance and Dark Discoveries. His work has also appeared in the anthologies Discoveries: Best of Horror and Dark Fantasy, The Devil's Coattails: More Dispatches from the Dark Frontier and HeavyGlow: Two Years Burning Brightly

His debut novel Kelland was released in the fall of 2009 to largely favorable reviews was awarded a Black Quill Award for Best Small Press Chill (Editors' Choice). It is currently available from Lethe Press.

Currently, Bens works for an historic Hollywood film studio as a paralegal in the new media division. He lives in the Los Angeles area with his husband.
