Who is Kelland?

When the Truth Is All That Matters

The truth begins with a family evacuated from Saigon during the final days of the Viet Nam War. Or perhaps it begins later, with a devoutly Catholic child with the voice of an angel who
is troubled by visions both sacred and profane. Or perhaps later still, with a couple drifting apart following a tragedy.

Kelland appears to them all in the guise of a small boy, a lover, a priest...Kelland is an enigma, a puzzle, and an almost imperceptible presence. Kelland is violence, sorrow
and joy. Kelland is the common thread tying five disparate strangers together.

In his Dark Scribe Magazine review of the novel, Stoker Award winner Vince A. Liaguno predicts that Kelland is likely to be the best book you might not read this year...And that would be a sincere shame. He also calls the novel a gorgeous, genre-defying novel of heartrending truth...

Karen L. Newman of Dark Discoveries Magazine said that the novel is ...reminiscent of Stephen King... and that Bens is an author to watch.

Kelland has been nominated for Best Small Press Chill in Dark Scribe Magazine's Black Quill Awards and is in the running for a Lambda Literary Award, an Edmund White Debut Fiction Award and the Ferro-Grumley Award, the latter two award in conjunction with The Publishing Triangle.
