Bronx-born wordsmith, Larry Benjamin considers himself less a writer than an artist whose chosen medium is the written word rather than clay or paint or bronze. He is the author of the allegorical Vampire novella Vampire Rising, the gay novels What Binds Us, and Unbroken―a 2014 Lambda Literary finalist, and a 2014 IPPY (Independent Publishers Book Award) Gold medalist―and Damaged Angels, a collection of short stories. He lives in Philadelphia with his husband and their two dogs.
