Ben Sharman - 15 years old
“Using computers to solve mysteries is really cool – but Linda drives me nuts!
She’s always rushing into things and she never listens. I’m working on a great piece of software – should have it up on the Web in a day or so."
Ben is a computer whiz. He builds software and sells it over the Internet for pocket money. He lives with his mother and his grandfather who owns a roller skating rink. Ben helps him out most evenings and weekends – selling tickets, playing music and looking after the candy shop.
Ben wants to work with computers, solving advanced Internet challenges. He hopes to visit Silicon Valley in California and swap ideas with other computer people. He finds it difficult to talk about personal things, but often drops in at Megan’s for some of Zoe’s cookies.
