Ben & Capt Mainwaring

Ben & Capt. Mainwaring (Dad’s Army)

In 2007, I retired from a hectic career as an electronics engineer having travelled the world and put on a lot of weight.  Casting around for something to keep me busy, I started walking long-distance trails with my wife Carol, and writing and self-publishing books. As of 2022, the boot miles are well over 3,000 and the published books number twenty-six with more in the offing.

I also started writing essays, sending them unsolicited to family and friends who sometimes responded and sometimes ignored me.  I wrote about anything and everything and, eventually, created and posted them in a blogging website, ben-bennetts.com

My self-published books, in ebook and paperback formats, cover topics as diverse as religion, winemaking, an erotic novel (using the pseudonym, J C Pascoe), blog collections, two storybooks for children, various autobiographies (as a pre-teen living in Ceylon; as a teen educated in an English boarding school; and my professional career), idiosyncrasies of the English language, long-distance walking, keeping fit as we age, how to create and self-publish either an ebook or a paperback book, a book of cartoons originally designed to illustrate my blogs, and a set of movie recommendations. You’ll find more detail here, plus the books are available as e-books on www.smashwords.com and paperbacks in Amazon’s Kindle Store.
