Ben Waterford was born in the United Kingdom in 1956.
At age 14, Ben Waterford emigrated with his parents from the UK to Australia. He left school at 15 and worked for the state railway company, initially as a junior officer. By the age of 21 he was appointed Station Master at a country location, being the youngest Station Master in the state of Western Australia at the time. By the age of 25 ben was also a qualified signalman at a busy metro station.
By 1984, aged 28, Ben moved into the world of computers, landing his first job as Computer Operator on mighty IBM and Amdahl mainframe machines. After relocating to a major commonwealth health agency in 1994, Ben provided network and computer support for another 11½ years before gaining a position with a local University as an IT Systems Analyst. After another 15 years, Ben retired in December 2020.
One thing that Ben always imagined doing was to write and publish a book. In 2008, at the age of 52 he decided it was now or never. So putting fingers to keyboard he began the journey into the realm of writing. Due to work and family commitments it was a slow road, but after a number of years Ben has now successfully self-published a number of fiction novels. He has further projects currently under way, and hopes to have more books and short stories published in the future for you all to enjoy.
