About

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 four finished novels – “Two Cats”, the sequel “Jade Mouse”, the third novel "Ten Arrows", 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 novel "Revenant", and a collaborative work titled "Shiftless", 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.

This is all gold, trust me. :D
      
      Joe's stoicism is intentional, part of his malaise. He's running from several things in terms of his past, and part of him doing that involves focusing on being his absolute best at something with a single-mindedness that doesn't give him time to think about all those other things. But at this point in time, given what he's come to realize about the new nature of this world he's living in, his concrete understandings have all blown apart in a way where he'll start questioning everything, and elements of his past will start creeping in.
      
      Of course, that's not until at least book #2, which-... oops! Probably shouldn't have mentioned there's going to be more books featuring this guy! Forget I said anything. ;)
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about Vincent's adventures, the books just sucked me in and did not let me go until I read the last page. All I can say is you have some serious talent. I am pretty sure I am going to have to read them through again to help numb the pain of waiting for book #4 :P

Oh... dear god. I hadn't even *thought* of that!
      
      Oh, sweet Jesus, what have you done?
      
      No.... no more stories! Make the stories stop! Please! I have too many already! Nooooooo!

Glad you liked it! And yeah, this is strictly a one-shot short story, something I wrote a while back.  
      
      Because... prologue? For that poor, poor nameless guy? There's only so much I can write about sentient fragments of bone. ;)
