Benedict Atchley was born in Pomona, California in the United States of America. He is the second oldest child in a family of thirteen. He attended Aquinas College from 2007 to 2011, where he received a BA in business administration. Since then he has written two full length novels while working in the telecommunications industry as a financial analyst. He first began studying Latin in high school and continued the study in college. His fondness for the language encouraged him to continue his study of Latin on his own. While still living in the USA, he is currently traveling abroad in Europe with his wife and daughter, which they will continue to do indefinitely.
