What's next for Ben

"I'm working on a new novel in a different genre of fiction. Prior to starting the book I had to do tremendous amounts of research on different professions, such as aviation and nuclear physics, to make sure the portrayals were accurate, so I am very excited about it! Aside from writing, my passion in life is working with children suffering from mental and behavioral health disorders."

How Ben Jacobs is changing the world

To Serve puts forward characters who are underrepresented in literature. Characters with disabilities, illness, and identities that don’t fit the status quo are the ones running the story in the novel. They are complex individuals with struggles that can be recognized in the real world as the struggle for socioeconomic equality is still well alive for groups who aren’t in a position of power. It recognizes the imbalance and gives those respective readers the recognition they deserve.
