Benjamin M. Weilert was born in Colorado in 1985.
While he went to school for Mechanical Engineering (eventually earning a Master’s Degree), he has found science to be interesting enough to write fiction about it. He likes to classify his novels as “science fantasy,” wherein the science is real and (semi) accurate, but portrayed in a fantasy setting to make it accessible to non-scientific readers. If you want stories that are surreptitiously educational, he’s your man.

Before 2009, Benjamin wrote a collection short stories that he had hoped to combine into a novel. While this never happened, he has used the experience to his benefit. One of these short stories, as well as a few poems of his, were published in the Colorado School of Mines’ creative anthology known as High Grade.

During his time in Alabama, he wrote a personal blog of his adventures entitled AlabamAdventures. Upon his return to Colorado, he ended the blog and began a new blog wherein he discusses the connections between a variety of movies. This blog is Cinema Connections.

Every novel he has ever written has been during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). He has won the challenge five times in a row and plans to win for many more years. Currently, he is the Municipal Liaison for the Colorado Springs region: helping other novelists find their story and write it down.

With his years of experience, he joined with fellow Colorado Springs authors as part of The Midnight Writers. Their goal is to help authors become better writers.

English is hard. Certain words may be spelled the same but have completely different meanings. Other words may sound the same, but have different spellings (and thus, different meanings). There are even words that may change meaning with the addition or subtraction of a single letter. This is why context is a huge part of […]

It is a rare feat to be able to write a perfect story. It’s even rarer to do so with the first draft. Hubris blinds the writer who considers the first draft of their writing to be perfect. Some writers might fall into the trap of crafting every single word of their first draft, thereby […]

Just like everyone has a bellybutton, we all have opinions. However, if the 2016 election has taught us anything, it’s that most people’s opinions seem to be on extreme ends of the spectrum. I know you can’t please all the people all of the time, but as writers who want to sell books, we should […]

It is to the credit of an actor to be recognizable. Often, this involves acting in roles for many years. The more prolific an actor is, the more likely audiences will begin to recognize them. Usually, with enough performances under their belt, these actors will be able to move up to leading roles and thus... Read more.

Friedrich Nietzsche once wrote, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” This statement is most relevant when it comes to the idea of revenge. A concept almost as old as time itself, revenge puts justice in our own hands after someone wrongs us. Often, the people who have done the wrong will wish... Read more.

One of the benefits of going to college is the networking that can occur via the conglomeration of like-minded individuals. If the cliques of high school were bad, imagine living in an entire house of these people. Jocks and nerds tend to segregate into their own little social circles, but sometimes they even go so...
