Author, Writer, and Editor

Hi, I'm Benjamin Z. Etzioni

My novel, Barnaby Atlas Fox, was just named a finalist in the 2022 American Writing Awards competition.

I first dreamed of becoming an author when I read John Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meany during my junior year in high school. I edited and designed weekly city newspapers for the various publications produced by the Orange County Register. During my time in the Army, I placed 2nd two consecutive years in Military Journalist of the Year competition and received the Rising Star award for outstanding new military journalist. My interview credits included President of Hungary, Ferenc Mádl and National Football League, Hall of Fame coach, Don Shula. If you recognize the beagle in the picture that is because he was a professional model for PetSmart.
