My name is Benjamin Roache and I am from Madison Heights Michigan. I am 19 years old. My passion is writing but I am currently pursuing a major in education, because I believe that if I can make it as a writer, I don't want a college professor telling me how to do it. Dickens didn't need a themes in literature course to be great. I have written one short film which my brother, Thomas will Direct this summer and am currently working on my first feature script, a semi-autobiographical piece, as well as workshopping the plot outlines for two more scripts that I hope to begin sometime next year.
