Ben Lewellyn-Taylor lives in Dallas, Texas with his spouse Meggie and their dog Rowlf. He taught middle and high school before returning to school for graduate studies on hip-hop, religion, and race, and he's still in school because he didn't take The College Dropout skits to heart. Ben's creative writing, including personal essays and poetry, can be found in various online literary journals.
