Brit Benson writes romance novels that are sassy, sexy, and sweet.
She is also terrible at talking about herself. Mostly she just forewarns people that she’s kind of lame and has a weird sense of humor, so befriend at your own risk. She has a short attention span, an even shorter short-term memory, and when she likes something, she obsesses on a borderline unhealthy level.
Brit would almost always rather be reading or writing, and almost never wants to socialize with real people. (Fictional people are good, though.) When she’s not dreaming up her next swoony book boyfriend and fierce book bestie, she’s getting lost in someone else’s fictional world. When she’s not doing that, she’s probably marathoning a Netflix series or wandering aimlessly up and down the aisles in Homegoods, sniffing candles and touching things she’ll never buy.
Brit currently resides somewhere near the Blue Ridge Parkway with her husband, daughters, dogs, and an obscene number of books.
To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard.Allen Ginsberg
You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.Erin Morgenstern, The Night Cirus
Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written in his works.Virgina Woolf
