Oh, hello! I'm Ben, Benjamin Joseph Kuniyoshi White if you're not into the whole brevity thing, and I write books. Books about pirate princesses, books about would-be greatest superheroes, books about gloomy girls bashing zombies about with baseball bats. Most of my books would fall squarely in the sub-sub-genre of 'Girls Kicking Arse', and probably if you had to choose a section of the library to put them in, Young Adult would be the safest bet.

I live in Nelson, New Zealand with my wife and two busy young daughters, and in pretty much every spare moment I have, I write.

 
BOOK BREAK

The Boy & Little Witch Children / Young Readers

The Boy's treehouse has seven basements and a crow's nest with a telescope, and a spiral slide that goes from the top of the tree to the bottom.

Little Witch's house is tall and thin and painted pink and purple, and it sits on top of a giant mushroom that smells like used teabags.

The Boy and Little Witch meet almost every day to trade lunches and talk and go wandering, to So Long Beach or Two Big Rocks, or to visit Cliff Face or Mr River. Sometimes they annoy each other or have disagreements, or Little Witch argues at The Boy while he sits and smiles, but they're best friends, and nothing can change that.

But there's something wrong happening deep in the heart of Oubliette Island, and even the outskirts have been touched. Though it means abandoning comfort and journeying through lands unknown (or perhaps just forgotten), The Boy and Little Witch set out to retrieve what was taken from them - and to find that which is most precious.

Miya Black, Pirate Princess II: Freedom & Responsibility Young Adult

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing - and although Miya Black wouldn't call her current life 'nothing', it certainly isn't anything close to an adventure. It's been more than half a year since the Black family's defeat of Badger Pete, and life has returned to normal on Clover Island - rather TOO normal, at least as far as a certain Pirate Princess is concerned. There are no terrible monsters to vanquish, no great and obvious wrongs to right, just everyday problems with everyday solutions and a lot of cleaning up. To put it bluntly Miya is bored, and being grounded doesn't help at all.

But dark clouds are gathering against the tiny kingdom, old enemies are stirring, and Miya may come to regret ever wishing for adventure ...

"Freedom & Responsibility" is the second volume in the Miya Black, Pirate Princess series.

Resonance Book One: Birds Of Passage Young Adult

Struggles unite us/Fates divide us/Darkness follows/Trust renews.

Resonance Book One: Birds of Passage - Hope Takes Flight ...

There is a force that exists beyond what is reasonable, an attraction that defies natural order and flies in the face of common sense. It passes through lives like an invisible wind, and those it touches are changed forever; set upon paths unchosen towards destinations unknown.

But there is no such thing as destiny, or so it is said. The future is unwritten and dreams can shape its course, and all across the world events conspire to entangle those who may yet understand:

In a finely furnished room there sits a girl watching the rain, and in her head a seed is planted that may bless or damn the world ...

In a dark and narrow alleyway, alone but for the night, a girl observes the world though she remains unseen herself ...

In a tiny rural village a girl pulls at stubborn weeds, and that
she neither sweats nor tires seems nothing but ordinary ...

In a city of stark contrast and impossible light a girl speeds across rooftops without a care in the world, unaware of who she is and the horrors her future holds ...

In an apartment in a college in a city of finest minds, a girl fusses over her father and she wishes for the past, while inside there grows a power that will change all that she knows ...

In a grotty little room in a cracked and sprawling building, a sister looks at a sister and sees the most important girl in the world ...

In a city of fear and control a boy kneels in penitent prayer, and that he cannot express his forbidden vision consumes him with
burning terror ...

In an unimportant bar in an insignificant town a man who simply should not be raises his head and stares at the wall, terrified and bewildered and filled, for the first time since he can remember, with hope ...

And the world turns, and the moon waxes and wanes, and the web grows tighter and the nights grow longer and the energy of others becomes the energy of self; the energy of all becomes the energy of one.

Elsewhere, it is achieved:

Resonance.

Charlotte Powers: Power Down Young Adult

Charlotte Powers has spent the first fifteen years of her life in the nicest prison imaginable; her family's secret volcano base. She has super-strength like her father, super-agility like her mother, and phase-shifting like her older brother - not QUITE as strong as any of them, but still, the sheer variety must count for something. She can lift the heaviest couch (although she needs to use BOTH arms to do so), she can run up walls and flip off them spectacularly (although not nearly as super-awesomely as her mother can), and if she doesn't feel like running up walls she can go out-of-phase and walk through them instead (when she doesn't just fall through the floor because she wasn't concentrating or got distracted by an errant thought about a potential Awesome Superhero Name). She's also half-cursed to tell the truth; her mother was hit with the full-strength curse while she was pregnant with Charlotte, and apparently that's how curse rules work. Still, every superhero needs a flaw, and 'mandatory honesty' isn't such a bad one.

All in all she has a good life - but that's not the problem. The problem is that the world needs heroes, that even if there aren't any supervillains there are PLENTY of regular villains, and Charlotte knows she's the girl to sort them out. So she's busting out of her pleasant prison and heading into the real world, exchanging the safety and comfort of her family's secret volcano base for the excitement and adventure of school - because before she can start properly superheroing she needs to establish a Public Identity, and what better place to do that than a nice normal school? Even if she has to hide her powers in order to fit in, Charlotte's POSITIVE that she'll make simply LOADS of friends and be SUPER popular...

But 'nice' and 'normal' are two adjectives that don't really apply to ANY school, and especially not to Emerald Hill Academy - and 'hiding her powers' is going to be a lot easier than Charlotte thought...
