WEST HAVEN, CONN. — Look up Ben East on Amazon and adventure books pop out at you. But it’s not THAT Ben East – an American outdoorsman and writer throughout much of the last century – that we are talking about.
We’re talking about Ben East, who earned a master’s degree at the University of New Haven in 1995, has worked as a Foreign Service Officer posted to U.S. Embassies around the world, and is one of 10 unpublished authors shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize, the richest in the UK for an unpublished novel. An excerpt from his book and that of the nine other authors on the shortlist is on Amazon, too. It is free and available here.
