Ken Benn from Palmerston North, NZ was an invited teller at the 2008 Festival.

Benn, Ken: New Zealand. 2008
Ken was the youngest in a colourful family. Large portions of his early childhood were spent locked up in a hot car, parked somewhere in Africa with an empty coke bottle for company. He had to develop a wild and fertile imagination. Ken continued to soak up stories from all corners of the planet having travelled to every continent before coming to rest, in 1993, on the best piece of land the universe has to offer. He loves to share these experiences and seldom allows truth to wreck and entertaining story. When questioned under oath or threat of inflicted pain, he will confess to being a teacher of mathematics and physics; once a door to door salesman in Birmingham selling second hand dentures; happily married to Cheryl, proud sire of James and Ceridwen and owner of a nyctophobic cat, Nufster. Ken has written several books, including Lethal Deliveries, a novel for young adults.
