Damien is the creative force behind Purple Spekter™.
Damien Benoit-Ledoux has enjoyed the creative design process throughout his life and consistently shaped music, images, documents, text, and words into amazing, memorable presentations.
In high school and college, he took as many creative writing classes as possible and participated in theater and choral productions while accompanying or leading one or more church choirs on the piano. When he turned twenty-one and the Internet became a thing, he built the church’s first website and became responsible for website development.
After several successful college and grad-school adventures with stage plays, choreography, graphic design, and video production, Damien found his true passion in the written and spoken word. He wrote seeds, or the ideas and plots that later grew into his first round of self-published books in the young adult, science fiction, and supernatural genres. There are many more seeds germinating in the fertile soil of Damien’s imagination.
After graduate school, Damien enjoyed four years of formal church ministry and continued using his gifts to serve those entrusted to him. After departing ministry, he put his document and presentation talents to good use in a full-time work and started writing SKYLER PHOENIX. He hasn’t stopped writing amazing stories since.
Today, Damien enjoys spending time with his husband, Tim, their son, Aury, their dog, Hugo, and their family and friends. He continues to embrace his love for story by shifting his career from business analysis and enterprise architecture to one of writing, editing, and promoting success for the written words of fellow authors and writers.
And finally, he wants you to remember a very important thing:
No matter how bad your day is at work, it’s always important to be grateful that you don’t work for a Sith Lord.
