P. J. Benney is a fantasy and science-fiction writer from Essex, England. He holds a BA in Creative Writing from the University of Roehampton. After the opening chapter of his novel Déjà Moo won Roehampton's Novel Writing Prize in 2013, he supposed he should probably finish the rest of it. A few people have described him as funny, but he's not sure if this was a compliment or not. His current hairstyle is 'surprised'.
