About Bentz Deyo

When you’ve lived in New Jersey your whole life, you have no choice but to interact with real life characters. So even when writing wasn’t my life’s plan—which was most of it—memory storage of interesting and sometimes strange people happened on a subconscious level.

I see now that those weird teachers and awkward middle school peers never let that character storage tank go hungry.

It wasn’t until Drew University that writing became a passion, and right after graduation, the idea came. The idea that birthed The Undelightened, a story of a teen boy whose biggest failure may end up being his greatest asset.

I live in NJ with my wife and daughter, and am currently writing Book 3 of the 5-part Undelightened Series. Book 2, The Unleashed, is due out Jan 13, 2017.
