Hi! I’m Ben.


I wrote The Dream World Collective, The Stone and the Song, and (with Bill Hoard) the Hubris Towers series.

I also founded Clickworks Press, host the podcast Nearly Fearless Leader, and…you know. I watch Netflix and stuff.

Mostly I’m just here to give you a good time. So. How do you want to do this?

Read a Story?

I’m a writer. You’re a reader. Enough said. Start reading.

Listen In?Adventures in faking it and/or making it with author, founder, and certified grown-up Ben Y. Faroe

Nearly Fearless Leader is where I share all my misadventures, minor victories, and errors. I’m basically an anti-guru. Come laugh at and/or learn from my mistakes.

Support My Work?

Thanks! The most strategic ways to help are:

  • Get a friend or two hooked. You know the ones I mean. They’ll love this stuff.
  • Leave reviews on Amazon and iTunes. Reviews boost me in the algorithm and influence new readers and listeners indefinitely.
  • Support me on Patreon. Every little bit makes a huge difference.

Thanks again! I truly (madly?) deeply appreciate every review, every dollar, every kind word. You guys are a gigantic part of this.

And if we’ve managed all this around the edges of a day job, just think what brilliance awaits once I can throw myself into it full-time!

Love and adventures,
