Aaron Kite is a writer/artist who likes putting slashes between occupations and who very rarely refers to himself in the third person. He was born on the exact same day that São Paulo Metro was inaugurated in Brazil, which the authorities claim is pure coincidence.

He has been interviewed by Science Magazine, the Calgary Herald, National Geographic, and this shady fellow named ‘Jimmy’ who kept pointedly asking him about his success as a writer with questions like “Got any spare change?” and “C’mon, really, do ya? I gotta catch a bus.”

Aaron was one of the founding members of the amateur writing group “Starting Write Now”, as well as countless side-projects which he’d mention by name if the government would finally get around to granting him immunity. He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, which really ought to have another sub-section to it, because another comma there would look really slick.

At present he has three finished novels – “Two Cats”, and the sequel “Jade Mouse”, as well as the standalone (but with sequels percolating in his brain) novel "A Touch of Poison". He’s currently in the middle of writing the novels, “Ten Arrows” and "Revenant", as well as about eleven or so other books that are all in varying states of doneness. When writing, he likes to disable his spell-checker and make up words, as is illustrated by the use of ‘doneness’ above.

He's allergic to cats, and thus he tries to arrange it so he's living with one whenever possible, probably just to prove a point of some sort.

FAVORITE AUTHORS: Steven Brust, Jim Butcher, Dave Duncan, Mercedes Lackey, Spider Robinson

When Vincent Tucat learns he's to be robbed, he turns the tables on the thief to enhance his own reputation. However, in city ruled by thieves, burglary and politics often go hand in hand, and things are rarely as straightforward as they appear.
