Born in England, he emigrated to New Zealand when he was twenty nine. Before his writing career, he worked as a high school teacher at one of Christchurch's leading high schools, Christ's College. Bennett is a columnist for Christchurch's newspaper The Press and has also authored several books.

From the "Introduction" to Fun Run and Other Oxymorons he describes himself as follows:<blockquote>"If anything holds these articles together it is that I like people but not in herds. I distrust all beliefs, most thought and anything ending in ism. Most opinion is emotion in fancy dress."</blockquote>

He has also been in segments on the New Zealand comedy show Moon TV hosted by "That Guy" Leigh Hart in a segment called "Bookzone: A Show About Books"
