Benjamin W. Farley 

Born in the Philippine Islands, Farley was reared on tobacco and cattle farms around Abingdon, VA. He received degrees from Davidson College and his PhD from Union Theological Seminary in Richmond. VA. After serving Presbyterian pastorates in the Tidewater area of VA and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Farely became a professor of Philosophy and Religion at Lees-McRae and later Erskine College. He authored eight scholarly works before his retirement in 2000, along with three works of fiction. Since retiring, Farley has published two additional scholarly pieces, plus four more novels. Most of his novels are set in the South, but his latest novel on the French and Indian War spans the continent from Quebec to the SW VA mountains. Farley's novels are listed under Barnes & as well as Amazon. Numerous reviews may be found there as well. Farley's choice of genre includes literary, historical, action, and cultural fiction. He loves a good love story, but shies away from romance. In his words, he writes "to nudge the essence of the soul." He considers his last three novels to be among his finest: Quilly Hall (set around his ancestral home), Beyond Homer (set in Paris where he studied in his youth) and his latest: Three Thousand Days and Nights: A Novel of the French and Indian War.
