Ben Pienaar was born in South Africa in 1991 and moved to Australia in 2000, where he lives and, more importantly, writes his days away. He also works two jobs to finance his crippling addiction to coffee, and spends his free time reading until his eyes hurt, and playing tennis.
In addition to Pienaar’s published tales, which are available in a number of anthologies now available on Amazon.com, a multitude of his stories can be found – free of charge – on his website. A periodically updated listing of his published works can be found on the website as well.
Pienaar’s dreams “to one day make drown men shiver with fear and traumatize small children.” He writes obsessively, in the hopes that if he can only pass his nightmares on to others, they might leave him alone.
