Ben Tanosborn


After completing graduate studies at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), BT set out for a career in international business that would take him to five continents, expose him to several cultures, and make him realize the importance for any and all Americans to become goodwill ambassadors for the United States. With his socio-political columns, BT hopes to bring to the forefront issues that are relevant to the national discussion in international affairs. His column appears, both in digital and printed newspapers, in several countries... and languages.

Ben's writings, however, extend beyond the journalistic and non-fictional confines. His passion is for the treatment, in either short story or novella form, of historical fiction, myths and legends, contemporary romance and narrative poetry. An anthology of historical short stories centered in the Pacific Northwest [Underground Stories from a City Not Somewhere Else] is scheduled for publication this year.

BT resides in Vancouver, Washington (USA) where he operates a business consulting firm.
