BENJAMIN CROSS is an archaeologist and #1 BESTSELLING author based in the UK. He has been lucky enough to explore some of the world's most spectacular ancient sites, from the temples of Cambodia to the Andean cloud forest cities of Peru, from the burial sites of the Tibetan plateau to the Maori strongholds of New Zealand. He has excavated many fascinating archaeological sites across the UK and is now Principal Heritage Consultant at a global environmental consultancy. Cross published his first work of fiction, a short story entitled 'The Changing Room', in the prestigious Mays Anthology, the publication that launched the career of award-winning author Zadie Smith. He followed-up with the publication of a second short story - 'Enclosure' - in the following year's anthology, becoming one of only a small number of authors to have had prose selected for publication in the Mays two years running. He was appointed Associate Editor the following year. Written whilst working full-time as a professional archaeologist, Cross's first novel 'Colony' took four years to complete. Once finished, the fast-paced action-thriller gained him representation from a literary agency, and soon made its way onto the desks of the world's top publishers. In April 2020 it was accepted for publication by Book Guild Publishing. ​Colony was published in January 2021 and the ebook became a #1 BESTSELLER on Amazon and Barnes & Noble! If you're a fan of adrenaline-fuelled, page-turning adventure, great writing and sheer escapism then look no further. PRAISE FOR COLONY: “...gripping...” “...a well-constructed thriller... very tightly plotted.” “It’s vivid, it’s fast-paced, it’s full of big ideas...” “Few new authors so neatly pick their way between being commercial and being quality, and [Cross] does it with aplomb, [Cross] is able to balance multiple characters with dexterity and clarity... a real talent.” “...hugely well done... [Cross]’s definitely got something.” “...such an escapist read. The pace doesn't let up, it is fun, it is witty and the action – especially the fights and the chases – is very well-delivered.” “...what a fantastic writer [Cross] is. The story is brilliantly written and executed... a real page-turner... a terrific read...” “Various scenes... will stay with me a long time! It’s all done with terrific brio... and some great twists...” “It comes as no surprise that the author is an archaeology expert – all the settings, artefacts and practices feel really authentic. Cross’s writing is of the exact kind of fast-paced, shrewdly observant style required for a good action thriller... very page-turning.” “ enjoyable as it is immediate.” “[Cross]’s good at action, and excellent at the scary stuff.” Visit Benjamin Cross's official website: Visit Benjamin Cross @ Facebook: Visit Benjamin Cross @ Twitter:
