Ben Kline originates from a river-flows-north section of old Appalachian wilderness. Raised on a busy cattle farm as part of a large family, he dreamed of skyscrapers, city smells, and downtown dive bars. Now in Cincinnati, he writes, muses and much more in between life's other adventures. His first book of poems -GOING FAST IN LOOSE DIRECTIONS - was published by Queer Young Cowboys in 2014. A follow up, GETTING LOOSE IN NEW POSITIONS, is in the editing phase with A Queer Press. His poetry and fiction have appeared in Knack Magazine, Headmaster Magazine, Birds Piled Loosely and apt.
