D. Odell Benson

The most important thing to know about D. Odell Benson I’m a free spirit. I believe in helping others when I can, and giving 100% in everything that I do. It has taken me all of my life to give in to what I love to do, and that’s write. As a child I loved writing, drawing, painting, just about anything with the arts. In High School, I noticed everyone using the term “starving artist” but I wanted to be successful, so I stopped writing and followed the paths that everyone else took. It wasn’t until my 36th birthday that I realized that success is based on what’s inside of us, I wanted to do something that I enjoyed and made me happy. So here I am, soon to be your favorite author.

Life is too short to worry about what other people think. I live by the beat in my own head and dance off rhythm because I can, making people smile is my main priority in life; I can’t accomplish that goal by being like everyone else.

I refuse to pursue any other career because my goal is to write. I have degrees, I have worked in different fields from correctional officer to fraud analyst. I want something that I am proud of, something that is mine, and I won’t get it if I voice that I have another option.

 I am at my best when I’m writing or coming up with something that is so far out of the box when it pertains to literature I sometimes have to pull myself back in; not everyone is ready to read books through the eyes of a murder. Most books talk about the “law” side of a situation. I’m at my best when I can provide a different view on something. 

My ultimate result is to write ninety books before I retire.

    1. Mzz Bensen, you state in your interview that you wish to write 90 books before you retire. That is a strange number. Please let us know why 90, why not 100?

    2. The answer D. Odell Benson gave blew me away...

      The answer to the question why not 100 books instead of 90, 1990 was a great year for me as a child. The year I truly found myself and my purpose in life which was to be an inspiration to others no matter their differences. In 1990 I knew then that I was on Earth to promote peace within my own neighborhood amongst friends and their enemies. I was always the peace maker for the most part, not saying I never got into trouble; but I learned then to take up for others that couldn't stand up for themselves. So 90 books represents the year I found my purpose, the year I learned how to pay rent to society for the space I use here on Earth.
