Benjamin M. Weilert is an award-winning multi-genre writer from Colorado who writes whatever stories pop into his head. He is on a mission to write something in every single genre…eventually.

Currently, he has written a Young Adult science fantasy trilogy (The Fluxion Trilogy), a memoir about climbing Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks with his father (Fourteener Father), a guidebook to movies (Cinema Connections), a children’s picture book (This is Not a Drill), a hard science fiction survival story (Buried Colony), an ice cream cookbook (Stop Screaming!), and many other short stories that have been published in anthologies—as well as his The Ascent of the Writer collection.

Every novel he has ever written has been during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). He has won the challenge 14 times in a row and plans to win for many more years to come. Currently, he is the Municipal Liaison for the Colorado Springs region: helping other novelists find their stories and write them down. He currently lives in Colorado Springs with his supporting wife and children. You can find him online on social media as “BMW the Author.”


Member of the Colorado Author’s League (CAL) since April 2023.
