Step into a world of scandalous secrets, lies, romance and royal deception with author Benjamin Dean as he presents his deliciously twisty and suspenseful queer YA thriller, The King is Dead, which follows James, a reluctant 17-year-old king forced on to the throne after the sudden death of his father. But when someone close to James goes missing, the secrets he’s been hiding are no longer safe… 

Benjamin Dean is a London-based children’s and YA author, as well as a celebrity and pop culture writer. His debut book, Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow, was a Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. He has interviewed a host of glitzy celebrities, including Chris Pratt and Little Mix, and also broke the news that Rihanna can’t wink (she blinks in case you were wondering).
