Author Biography

Benjamin writes fun, genre-bending novels that inspire, uplift, and entertain. Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, he has traveled widely and spent a large chunk of his adult life in Japan. He can now be found sauntering through the maze of narrow, stony alleyways in the ancient and legend-rich town of Safed, in Israel's upper Galilee. He's become convinced that the doppelgänger of everyone he has ever known passes through the humble, kooky little town. He is currently at work on his next novel.

Benjamin relishes the simple life and doesn't own a TV and rarely goes to the movies. He likes classical music, jazz, country, and rock 'n' roll until it wasn't. Benjamin also wants to pet every dog he sees. He thinks that as long as he is doing his best to write fun, original stories, the Universe will grant him another day. Dumb, but it has worked so far. He avoids crowds and noise, but despite these quirks, he does enjoy engaging with fans and readers, and he always responds to email.

If you like original, life-affirming stories with characters who stay with you long after you've put down the book, please give one of his novels a try.

Murphy’s Luck 2 is a funny, silly, unrealistic look into the life of Murphy Drummer. Murphy has been considered a jinx since childhood, not liked by anyone, causing disaster wherever he went until finally he is forced to never leave his house. But circumstances happen and events occur and Murphy is in the neighborhood bank as a robbery is taking place. His heroics catch the thieves and save lives and he is enlisted by the FBI for a mission of great importance. Murphy agrees, only on the condition that his payment will be a dog for his young daughter. While in Florida on his assignment, Murphy faces komodo dragons, encounters danger and so much more, but all is made safer because of his fast actions and his lucky rabbit's foot. It is told in a comical and unbelievable way. It is impossible to describe because this book must be read to really appreciate Murphy and his luck.

I was very quickly pulled into this story and found it absolutely impossible not to like Murphy, his loving wife, Joy, and all of the good and bad characters that cross his path. Benjamin Laskin has written Murphy’s Luck 2 as a standalone story, but I can’t wait to read Murphy’s Luck 1 and all of his other books. If you like adventure, excitement, comedy and just a fun light story, then this is a must-read. In my opinion, a TV series about Murphy and his adventures would make a show I would look forward to watching each and every week. Don’t pass up reading Murphy’s Luck 2; you will certainly not be disappointed.
