Benjamin Shepherd Quiñones

I’m half Puerto Rican, 20 years old, and a student at Lehigh University where I study Psychology. From an early age, three things interested me most: science, writing, and science fiction. Some fringe interests include the color yellow, X-Men, Latin music and dancing, soccer, tennis, and any animal that is not a snake. Benjamin Shepherd Quiñones appeared to be no different from most boys his age growing up in suburban New Jersey. He loved climbing trees, playing soccer, and tormenting his younger sister. Little did people know he also really loved reading and writing science fiction/fantasy. Over the years, his interests have broadened to latin dancing, being as openly gay as possible and studying Psychology with a concentration in Clinical and Behavioral Health. He hopes to be a counseling psychologist after a few more years of schooling and of course continue writing.
