Derek Benz

Derek has climbed volcanoes in the Ring of Fire, fished for sharks in the North Atlantic, scandalized the Cathedral of Barcelona, been mauled by an angry kitten off the coast of Turkey, narrowly avoided being blown up outside Belfast, and learned the meaning of defenestration in France. His interests span a wide spectrum: archaeology, linguistics, cosmology, genetics, nano-tech and a host of others.

Derek is the co-author of six Grey Griffins novels, and has also published two stand-alone Griffin books: The Grey Griffin Companion and Operation Sheba. He attended Columbia University and currently lives in Houston, Texas.
