The Final Crossing: A Tale of Self-Discovery and Adventure
The story takes us back to what has become known as “the cradle of civilization.” It’s a story about freedom, love and the guiding hand of a god; a journey that still holds true today. As we strive for the same goals, we question our beliefs, we change our behaviours, we hold on to what has served us well, and, we redefine ourselves and our world for a better life. It’s a story that entertains and perhaps helps us see life in a different way.The Star

What’s the main reason someone should really read this book?IndieReader
Because it’s fresh, fun, and exciting. It has adventure, romance, and drama. There’s action and violence, but also touches on some more serious subjects that the gay community still has to deal with today. There are relatable personal life issues for different individuals. It’s an LGBT romance novel that’s never been told before and has you eagerly turning every page.

Blood and Silver
“Blood and Silver” won several awards, including the Arizona Authors Association’s Best in Fiction prize in 2021, but it was not blessed with good timing.
It released April 4, 2020, just as Americans began locking down because of COVID. Bookstores were closed. Schools and libraries were functioning only online. Sales were hard to come by, but the author was not dissuaded.
Arizona Daily Star
“People are asking me what happened to Mary? What happens to the girls? I think we may need a sequel,” Benson said with a smile.

I’ll Go the Length of Meself: The Story of Newfoundland’s Daring Rascal, Captain Guy Earle, North America’s Youngest Master Mariner
I’LL GO THE LENGTH OF MESELF is not only a touching tribute to Skipper Guy Earle, author Philip Earle’s father and greatest hero, but also a warm, nostalgic look back at an entire culture and its character and values.4.5/5 STARS ~Catherine Langrehr for IndieReader
The author’s biography is also a memoir—he recounts his own youth under Guy’s tutelage, recalling his introduction to a mariner’s life at 8. Guy’s career was a truly memorable one, endearingly captured by his son, who also intelligently limns the end of a schooner era that was ultimately destroyed by government policy.KIRKUS Review
