Allow me to introduce myself. I am Benjamin Raven Pressley. I am an author, a survival skills instructor, an artist and a spiritual guide. I am Cherokee (Tsalagi) by heritage. I have been an actor on a local level and a historical interpreter and re-enactor. I am a martial artist. I am father of four grown children. My love for the outdoors and spiritual truth is apparent in all that I write. I particularly love the genre of fantasy and love being a fantasy fiction author. I cut my teeth on C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings long before they were made into movies. I am a prolific reader and writer. Writing is my passion! I love creating imaginary worlds and characters that inspire and entertain. I made a vow early on that I would not use characters like orcs, elves, dwarves and unicorns…nothing wrong with these characters but it seems every fantasy work contains these same characters and I wanted to do something different. My seven volume series RAVENQUEST is the most original series you have ever read. I created the world of Terra Zem and it has already inspired a sequel series SHADOWQUEST and several spin-offs of the many characters I have created. Terra Zem continues to inspire me to write more everyday. This website is my author website and showcases all the books I have written and are available to you. My blog will be a continuous exploration of the characters of Terra Zem, book specials, discussions on writing, deep thoughts, short stories and creative works and much, much more! It is my desire to inspire and entertain and I hope you will enjoy all that I have to offer. I would love to hear from you by e-mail and encourage your book reviews and input on Amazon and wherever my books are sold.
