Meri Benson

indie author & artist

Writing a book is more than just putting words on a page. It’s about creating living, breathing characters in an ever evolving world that people can escape to.
So come escape with me.


Find Meri’s debut novel with Marie Sinadjan, Hotel Fen, as well as the other shorts she’s written on her Books page.


When no writing and creating new worlds, Meri love to create in other ways. From acrylic painting to resin work and jewelry, there’s always something on her table. Check out what’s for sale on her Etsy Shop!


Writing isn’t always just about the books and outlines. Sometimes it’s just to share what’s going on in my life, what I’m reading, and other books and authors I’m excited for. So make sure to stay up to date with my blog!


Meri Benson is a Chicago-land native and has been storytelling since as long as she can remember. She’s been attending science fiction and fantasy conventions since the age of 4, so it’s probably no wonder that she has a habit of crafting worlds that are filled with dragons, faeries, and other mythological and paranormal creatures.
