Benjamin Ryan’s Debut Novel

Tea With Coffee Media will release “Madame Eldridge’s Wayward Home for Unruly Boys” on August 1, 2023. From debut author Benjamin Ryan, this book follows a group of disorderly boys who must unmask the truth about their caretaker and her intentions for the magic they possess.

There are three official rules for living within Madame Eldridge’s boarding house in the Virginia backwoods. What happens here stays here. All challenges must be completed within the week. And every boy is referred to by their problem, not their name. But there is a fourth rule, an unspoken rule. Don’t enter the third floor bedroom. That doesn’t stop Vandalize from breaking in or Stealer from taking a framed picture. Only this item happens to hold magic, magic that requires a price for every use. When Fibbsy encounters a dark entity and goes back in time, he discovers a secret regarding the forbidden bedroom’s former ward that forces the boys to band together and figure out what’s really going on within their boarding house. 

Benjamin Ryan is a former military brat who has degrees in Education, Art History and World Religions from New York University. He currently works as a New York City public Special Education teacher. More information about Benjamin Ryan can be found here.

Tyler Wittkofsky is a multi-genre author, blogger, award-winning marketing and communications professional, and fierce mental health advocate from the southern coast of North Carolina. Tyler has been writing short stories for as long as he can remember. Growing up the grandson of an English teacher, Tyler had a constant fuel to his creative fire in his grandmother. He started writing poetry in 2012 to cope with his mental health struggles with anxiety, bipolar, and depression. Using poetry as an escape, he developed a unique style of poetry that has left readers saying, “Tyler’s voice is compassionate, even while suffering, and I felt the despair and loneliness seeping out through his words.” His first poetry collection, composed of poems written from 2012 to 2016, was published in March 2020. He began his first novel in 2019. The novel, (Not) Alone, was a story based on true events surrounding the struggles of living with mental illness. Described by readers as “An Intimate Closure with Mental Illness,” this began Tyler’s revitalized passion for mental health. He decided that his writing would have a focus on mental health. His next novel, The Seeds of Love: Sunflower Kisses Book One, was his debut romance novel and debut series. Described as “a great job of relaying the realistic emotions of young love and emotional drama that is particularly difficult for young adults…”, his debut romance novel was met with much success. In 2021, Tyler began writing short stories. He was accepted into several anthologies in mid-2021, expected for publication in early 2022. He also writes supernatural horror and historical fantasy for the online magazines In the Pantheon and In the Crescent. He has work published through Five Minute Affairs as well. He built his website in 2021. On this site, he started his blogging journey. He began writing book reviews, interviewing indie authors, and writing on mental health. This passion sparked a new desire to connect with more people. Tyler is currently in the beginning stages of two podcasts that he hopes to be live by the end of 2021. Tyler currently lives in Leland, North Carolina with his wife, Grace, and dogs, Dutch and Belle. You can find him and his works here:
